I have just passed BCMSN yesterday, Now I have {BSCI, BCMSN} in my collection.

Will be doing TSHOOT in the next few months. Now my question to those who have done BCMSN,BSCI,TSHOOT combination, did you have to study the new ROUTE and SWITCH books to prepare for TSHOOT or the TSHOOT material is enough. I know the TSHOOT is based on the new format of ROUTE and SWITCH that is why I am asking.

    I didn't look through any of the new route or switch material and I passed the TSHOOT exam. I would only suggest reading through the first few chapters of the TSHOOT exam certification guide, then go and take this while the BCMSN and BSCI material is fresh in your head.

    Check out Bill Scott's webpage with advice for TSHOOT exam preparation at

    Good luck

    I took the BSCI, BCMSN, and TSHOOT route but I didn't study any SWITCH or ROUTE materials. I think the TSHOOT book might help a bit. It could be the difference between a pass and a fail so you should go for it. And good luck!

    Thanks guys, its interesting to hear your experiences. I think you are right guys, I was wondering myself as to what Troubleshooting they will teach apart from that I learn in my everyday work! Will look at the TSHOOT book though so that I am in line with the materials.

    Congrats. I'm doing the exact same thing as you basically, but i take the BCMSN on thursday. I was kinda putting it off for a bit till i realized just how soon they retire it, so i scheduled it for the last day i could. After that, its just the TSHOOT.
