  Passed Switch 300-115 12/19
Posted by: Static357 - 12-20-2019, 01:46 AM - Forum: CCNP SWITCH 300-115 - Replies (1)

Well, I took the switch exam today to re-certify CCNP R&S and passed with a score of 834/1000. I used this site, read the official study guide from Cisco Press, as well as viewed various videos on INE and YouTube. The Cisco Press book was helpful as was this site but either one of them alone would not have been enough to pass the exam. In my opinion, this site is very good for the lab practice, the drag and drop experience, and the multiple choice simlets. However, definitely make sure that you you understand the concepts behind the questions on this site and not just the answers, as others have said. There were many questions on the exam that were totally new, and some that were very close to being the same. A comprehensive approach is best and the exam should not be taken lightly in my experience(s). Best of luck to all who read this.

Big Grin Passed switch! 12/12
Posted by: bfinnessey - 12-13-2019, 06:51 AM - Forum: CCNP SWITCH 300-115 - Replies (2)

First time taking CCNP switch passed with 812 out of 44 questions. I’m roughly 4 years fresh in the field. How2pass was pretty dang accurate. People don’t lie when they say “make sure you know the labs!” I believe I had lab 7 and seemed to be with a twist. It seemed very vague, and I burnt out 20 minutes on it and was forced to move on. The drag n drops and sims were dead accurate, and only maybe a handful of MC were worded differently. I’ll be using H2P for route within the next couple months! 10/10 would recommend.  Cool

Thumbs Up Passed Switch!
Posted by: johndamanager - 12-08-2019, 02:40 PM - Forum: CCNP SWITCH 300-115 - Replies (5)

Passed the Switch yesterday! Score was well over the passing minimum.

I had only 44 questions including the lab and simlets. Lots of questions from the "recently updated" question section, I had the HSRP and the VTP simlet, but only the LACP lab. Had a drag and drop I hadn't seen before, seven options true/false about LLDP packets. Definitely some new questions, which is going to happen, and a lot of them were very nit-picky and about things I didn't really feel were great judges of your overall knowledge, but then again, I'm not Cisco and I am not the judge haha.

In my lab, switch two gave me some grief about the encapsulation dot1q command. It accepted the command, but then showed the encapsulation type as auto, and when I tried to input the command again, it gave me the error that you cannot configure encapsulation on an interface who's trunking status is set to auto... idk. I just went through and re-verified everything. It all looked good, but I issued all the commands again, and then it worked. Copy run start is rejected, however, the full command, copy running-config startup-config WAS accepted. Idk how much of a difference that makes, but I was able to tab that out and it took it. Definitely make sure you are strong on this lab because everyone I know who has taken this test got this one!

My simlets were identical to H2P, the lab was very similar, and I'd say of the remaining questions, I'd seen about 70% of them before, or something extremely similar. I got a few wild curveballs (always seems to happen), but very glad I had H2P! Do your labs, do your simlets, know all of the recently updated questions by heart, and get above a 90% on your random tests consistently and you'll be fine, provided you read a good study book and know what you're about. Thanks again, H2P! It's been a great ride  Cool

  All Questions Mode
Posted by: john1986 - 12-04-2019, 08:11 PM - Forum: Site News & Issues - Replies (3)


Is there any way to be able to do the all questions mode with out having the restrictions? I basically want to be able to be to do it without timers, have the ability to enable the answer button, etc. If there is not a way to do so, can this possibly be put into a future update?

  ROUTE 300-101

I have a few questions about the actual Cisco Exam that this site is helping to prepare us for (300-101):

Other than the 726+ multiple choice/drag and drop questions and the two provided SIM/SIMLET/TESTLET challenge questions what else will be on the exam?  Is the hands on labs section actually on the exam or is that just to help prepare you for the real world? 

There is a lot of content to absorb and I have been putting in the time reading the Cisco Press Official Exam Guide and spending a lot of time on this website trying to sharpen my skills and see what types of questions to expect on the exam.  I think it would do everyone a world of good to know exactly what to expect on test day.  How many questions are we talking about?  How many are they standard multiple choice/Drag and drop and how many are hands on?  Can you tell us specifically which hands on questions to spend our time perfecting (I know... study everything and be prepared for anything Cisco can throw at you).  But really.... where should I spend most of my time between now and exam day?  I have already spent 4 weeks on this web site after reading the Cisco Press Official Exam Guide cover to cover and I still don't feel like I am ready to face the exam.  But I think a few more short days refining my focus on the hands on section of the exam will go a long way.

Thank you for your help as I try to take this last step in my CCNP Certification

how2pass is an awesome practical study resource, worth every penny, thanks to the wealth of knowledge you will obtain studying this material. It is a great learning resource for all the exam topics, thanks to the very detailed explanations for each question and the great practice sims and labs.

You could pass using how2pass only if you have experience in the field. You should get additional resources if you are a beginner. Questions randomly come from every section so you need to learn all the questions and study all topics. You also need to know all of the labs and sims very well because they are not exactly the same on the test, they are modified. Not just different IPs, but different config, output. You need to understand all parts of the labs and simlets in depth if you want to do well. I think this test in general was way too much material packed together and it was very tough to get through in 2 months. If you are new take the 2 test path to CCNA.

  QID SW750 error
Posted by: bleppla - 11-21-2019, 04:25 PM - Forum: CCNP SWITCH 300-115 - No Replies

This question asks about the extended range of VLAN IDs and one of the "correct" answers (according to H2P) includes: "Extended range VLANs from 1006-4096 are stored in the startup configuration". Now, I have no problem with the last part of the statement that these are stored in NVRAM but I have an issue with the range 1006-4096. I brought this to their (H2P) attention and they sent two links to Cisco documents that actually state this is the correct range. However, I discovered many other documents from Cisco that state the correct range is 1006-4094, if you exclude 4095 as the reserved VLAN ID. H2P further answered my objections with the dismissive "But technically, you are correct. Perhaps different Cisco boxes have different limits. If you see such question in exam with VLAN option 1-4094 you can select it." No kidding! That's what I was going to do anyway! But what happens if BOTH ranges are on the test? Which one do we select? Why would different boxes have different ranges anyway if the VLAN ID field is limited to 12 bits? If it was extended to 13 bits that would have been mentioned in the documentation SOMEWHERE but the range would then go from 0-8191 (since two to the thirteenth power is 8092). How else can you justify including 4096 as a valid VLAN ID number? You can't.

Simply put, there are 12 bits allocated to the VLAN ID field in the 802.1q Ethernet frame, I think no one disputes that. Two to the twelfth power is 4096 which is the total number of VLAN IDs available. Now I have been taught that VLAN ID numbering starts with 0, even though that number is reserved and cannot be used. Therefore, the last number available would be 4095, NOT 4096!! Cisco documentation also states that VLAN ID 4095 is reserved and cannot be used. So here is the issue I have with H2P:

1. IF the correct extended VLAN ID range is as you state 1006-4096, then what happens to 4095? Is is still unusable or are both 4095 AND 4096 unusable?
2. How in any rational sense can you accept that 12 bits in the VLAN ID field can equate to 4097 numbers (0-4096)??? C'mon H2P, use some common sense and do't just rely on obviously wrong documentation!!
3. The answer you gave me ("But technically, you are correct. Perhaps different Cisco boxes have different limits. If you see such question in exam with VLAN option 1-4094 you can select it.") is a copout in the face of evidence to the contrary. This calls into question your willingness to admit you are wrong (despite the two documents you cited against the myriad of other documents that I can cite to the contrary) and further casts doubt as to the validity of answers to other questions you give that seem not quite right, some of which are posted in this forum.

So without a clear admission on the part of H2P that they could be wrong, that the documents they cite are wrong (typos?), and a willingness to actually change their answer accordingly I have to warn others that are looking at H2P as the tremendous help they have been at showing many how to pass Cisco exams (I count myself as one in that category), to question the validity of H2P answers and explanations. Bottom line: do NOT take their answers at face value! They are fallible just like any of us! It is the willingness to admit a mistake ("...technically, you are correct..." is no such admission but a copout in my opinion) that will increase their credibility and value. Otherwise, BEWARE!
