Sim Intelligence... Just Curious

I wonder how smart the CCNA Sims are? For example, say you are presented with a SIM that requires you to setup RIP across three routers.

ROUTER1 - and
ROUTER2 - and
ROUTER3 - and

Now we all know that when setting up RIP we only need to use the network command for the networks on that local router.. ie: "net" and "net" for ROUTER1. I am wondering if the SIM would take away points if you defined all of the networks on one router.. ie: "net", "net", "net", ect on ROUTER1.

Both examples technically work; but only the local networks on each respective router are required.

    Generally i've found the sim on the exams will not allow you to do much more than required.For instance on one i was asked to create vlan 100, i tryed to create vlan 101 just for a test and it didnt allow.But i'm sure this varies sim to sim.In the rip example you gave i would not advise taking this approach as you will be deducted points for lack of understanding how to define networks.
    Networking, sometimes i love it, mostly i hate it.Its all about the $$$$

    If you log into the CCNA prep center there is at least one video covering what the sims can and cannot do.
