CCNP Renewed (TSHOOT)

theodoxatheodoxa Member Posts: 1,340 ■■■■□□□□□□
I passed (917/1000).

They have made TSHOOT a lot harder than the old 642 version I took 3 years ago. This time it took me 90 minutes. Last time I think I finished in 45 minutes and that included what felt like forever on one question because I didn't realize the correct answer was off the bottom of the screen and I needed to scroll down to it. This time there weren't really any gimmes (stuff a CCNA should be able to figure out quickly) like the last time.

From the Exam Topics

642-832 (2010-2015): 16 SWITCH and 9 ROUTE topics (2 that mention IPv6)
300-135 (2015-Present): 17 SWITCH and 31 ROUTE topics (4 that mention IPv6)

The exam topics were a good guide to what I actually saw on the exam (save for a couple non-ticket questions which went into minutiae I did not expect), though obviously there were many subtopics I was not tested on as there are only so many questions (tickets and non-ticket questions).

    congrats. we're there more gotchas this time around or is it straight forward with issues isolated from others?

    Did you have to study at all for it? Was there much trivia?

    Congrats! I almost scheduled my TSHOOT for this Friday after passing ROUTE last Friday, but my first run through with the Boson pre-test wasn't over 900 this morning like I thought it would be. As a result, I'm holding off until I get use to the exam layout by running through the other two Boson Pre-Tests. Then, I'll take it next week.

    Yes. I reread the current ROUTE and SWITCH OCGs and built the topology twice using physical equipment (1841, 3560, 2960-X). As for trivia, most of the exam is tickets which are straightforward albeit with more Layer 3 and IPv6 (this should be apparent looking at the exam topics) than last go around, but I did get a couple of non-ticket questions I would categorize as trivia. FWIW, I think they were only worth a small percentage, so it shouldn't have caused anyone to fail unless they were close to begin with.

    There was one ticket I couldn't figure out and one had two issues, but they were in the same technology/protocol, so it wasn't like they broke multiple different things.
