There is a mixed opinion on this and in the end you will have to decide for yourself. Simulators and real labs both have their merits. It's advisable to buy at least some equipment if you plan to put your certs to work and don't have hands-on work experience with cisco routers and switches. You just can't simulate feeling and connecting cables and connectors.

icon_confused.gif: How do the actual simulator questions work and how are they scored?

As mentioned in Cisco's Certifications Online Support section, the sims carry greater weight than regular test questions in calculating the final score. This is something most people do know or at least assume, which only led to more questions. Understandable.

Below are two quotes from the Certfications Online Support section at cisco, the first is rather logical...
cisco wrote:
Router simulation exams items will accept abbreviated commands that an actual Cisco router will understand. For example: 'Show Config' or ‘Sho Cofig’ or ‘Sh Conf’ and ‘Router #show ip protocol’ or ‘router # show ip prot’ would be acceptable. The exam commands must include the correct spacing, spelling and marks (#@!?).
cisco wrote:
The router simulation exam questions do not require candidates to save the configuration prior to exiting the simulation question to receive credit.
I did save the config on all my sims (BSCI exam and CCNA intro beta), and wouldn't have passed if the sims were counted wrong cause I had plenty on the BSCI exam.

This leaves the tab mystery unsolved, however, the tutorial sim below suggests the sims work like an actual router:

"This is only a demo of an actual exam simulation. On the exam, the terminal emulation program would respond just as it would when connected to a router"
(This is also my experience, it was fully functional, though I don't know if I actually used the tab, not much used in real world either).

icon_arrow.gif www.cisco.com/go/examtutorial

If you have any more questions feel free to reply to this topic. Do not ask about or mention the topics of the sim or discuss any required steps for specific sims. Everything related to the CCNA objectives that cover something that can be configured, is a possible topic for the CCNA exam. You need to know them all, not just the once Cisco happens to have currently in their exams, or someone else got last week. icon_wink.gif

Anyway, I hope this solves some of the mysteries around the sims. As I mentioned in a previous post, focus on the topics, gain the knowledge and skills to configure a real router (or a good sim product) and you'll do fine on the actual sims.

Check out this interesting article which includes some information about how much the sims weigh and how they are scored (partial credit):

All,

First I want to say welcome to the Cisco section of TechExams. Let me know if you have any questions during your visit. We have some very knowledgeable members that are more than willing to help you out.

BUT...

We do have some rules. It is ok to talk about areas that are good to focus, (like the blueprint for the test) but it is not ok to state what questions or sims you had (To be more clear....do not say I had two on OSPF and one on Underwater Basket Weaving..Yes, I know that is not getting specifics...but you should not be mentioning these at all. It is not my NDA or TechExams NDA...it is what you signed w/ Cisco.) icon_wink.gif If you can't face the question or the sim, without a heads up, your not ready for the exam.

Again, welcome to the forum. Learn as much as you can. Help when you can help. And please watch what you post.

Thanks...

    I took the 640-801 exam at a Vue testing center, and they did allow the ? command. I don't remember if it gave all the available options or not, but it did work.
    My Instructor told me that the ? command did not work, but I tried it and it did.
    I did not try the tab, so I am not sure one that.

    My instructor also told me that you had to save config for each router sim aswell, which according to your post is not required. But I did it anyway.
  • DrakonblaydeDrakonblayde Posts: 542Member
    The ? command has worked for me on all three Cisco exams I've taken, as long as the command is relevant to the sim. There was one sim on BSCI where I was going a different direction than the sim wanted me to, and the ? command gave me 'Unrecognized command'. That was a hint to me that I was barking up the wrong tree, as it worked just fine for the commands I was supposed to issue.

    And I don't care what Cisco says, saving your config is just one of those cover your behind activities that you SHOULD be doing. Why chance failing a sim based on three words?

    I'm also curious as to whether the survey questions influence your sim choice. I used to think so, but for BSCI, I answered quite a bit differently than one of my co-workers, and we ended up getting the exact same sims, so I don't think the survey actually does influence your sim choices.

    I am preparing for the CCNA right now, to save the configs, do they want copy run start, or would write work as well?

    I know on the routers I used in class, we just used write to save time.

    Do they mark you wrong if you go back and fix a screwup before you click the continue button? I know in my exam I got so confused by the bad sentence structure that I ended up configuring the switches backwards. I ended up putting one switches config on the other but then discovered the error and fixed it up.

    Also wonder if they mark off for using the help functions. Or am I overthinking it again and all they care about is the config on the device when you click continue.

    I am going to give my exam in next couple of days. let me know whether the "?" is allowed at pearson vue or not. If not then i will have to postpone my exam to some other date.

    Pearson VUE and Prometric provide the same test, what goes at Pearson goes at Prometric and vice versa. Regardless, I would postpone if I felt that heavily about the "?".
    Do they mark you wrong if you go back and fix a screwup before you click the continue button?
    Not unless you do some reall out of line configs.

    There's nothing bad about using the help functions in a sim or real life scenario.

    I took the examlast monday at a Prometric test center and I was able to tab commands and ? in the sim.

    I think I tried to "write mem" and got an error so I ended up using copy run start.
  • KGhaleonKGhaleon Posts: 1,347Member
    You were able to Tab? The exams I took with Prometric had a dialogue box on the left side of the screen that said Tab was disabled.

  • milliampmilliamp Posts: 135Member
    I remember reading a post on the board from someone that could not use tab on the exam before I took mine. I read the little box on the left and it was listing functions that could be used in the sim, and tab was listed as a supported function.

    Maybe some of the test centers are using a different version of the sim software...
  • sysmaxsysmax Posts: 3Member ■□□□□□□□□□
    When I took the exam today I play with the sim, it support full functions better than my Boson NetSim. Forgot to check "show version" to get the info about the software they use.

    Can we add a list of Well known port numbers that would most likely be on the test. I think it may help some people. So far I have


    20 FTP (Data)
    21 FTP (Control)
    25 SMTP
    23 Telnet
    53 DNS
    69 TFTP
    80 HTTP
    110 Pop3
    119 NNTP

    I think it would also help if someone might be able to split them up between TCP nad UDP port numbers. I got a little confused just now so I didn't do that step (so I don't mess the next person up) when i went to iana.org they had some like TFTP which I always thought was a UDP protocol as both

    So here we go (I'm guessing off the top of my head here).

    20 / 21 - FTP (TCP)
    23 - Telnet (TCP)
    35 - SMTP (TCP)
    53 - DNS (TCP)
    53 - DNS (UDP)
    69 - TFTP (UDP)
    80 - HTTP (TCP)
    110 - POP3 (TCP)
    119 - NNTP (TCP??)
    143 - IMAP (TCP)
    161 - SNMP (UDP)
    443 - HTTPS (TCP)

    How's that?

    CCNA Lab Manual - Not the same lab manual listed above. Some of the material is a bit dated (dial-up, ISDN, 1900 switches, etc) but there are still many useful labs for someone studying for the CCNA. I will admit though, some of the choices makde are a bit curious to say the least. For example, designated router elections are listed as a "supplemental lab" that you should go find your own docs and figure out, but there is a full multi-area OSPF lab. Written by Matthew Basham.

    Cisco Complete Guide Series - This author has written a complete CCNA study guide and posted it for free download. He is also working on a CCNP Route study guide, and a chapter from that is also available for download. I have yet to read it through, so I can't say what it's worth. Written by Yap Chin Hoong.

    Free CCNA Workbook - This one is a work in progress, nearing completion. These labs are all written to be done on GNS3 or dynagen and will therefore be a miracle for those who cannot afford a sufficient home lab. Written by Matthew George, who can be reached on the workbook's site, as well as it's Facebook Fan Page. I've also seen him on this forum. There is also a YouTube Channel for videos related to the workbook.

    GNS3 Labs - Another valuable site for labs written for GNS3. This site contains labs for CCNA and CCNP level study.

    GNS3 Vault - Yet another collection of labs and other resources for GNS3. Check out the combined lab for ICND2 which manages to get RIP, OSPF and EIGRP all included in a 3 router triangle topology and gets harrier from there.

    One more link for the GNS3 crowd. This Blog Post describes how to connect your simulated routers in GNS3 to with your real routers and switches. Now you can have actual switching in your labs.

    And before you buy any router to use as a frame relay switch, take a look at this alternative that could end up saving you some money.

    I used the help (? and tab completion) commands on most of my exams and passed the majority of them with even higher scores than yours.

    You get more points for SIMs. You get partial credit on SIMs. Those are the only two things Cisco has admitted about exam grading. Anything else you've heard is just someone's best guess (or joke to mess with you).

    Sounds like wishful thinking out of the desire to have more control over the outcome of the sim - somehow reminds me of an old friend pressing buttons on a slot machines in a certain order he was convinced would lead to better results. icon_lol.gif

    There's no trick for passing the sims or getting the max score. The help features in the Cisco exam sims have actually been expanded/improved since they added sims to the exams. It would make no sense to punish exam candidates for using them.

    You may get partial credit on a sim if you haven't completed the configuration, but deducting points for additional actions that don't even show up in the eventual configuration is highly unlikely.
