210-060 CICD in two days

Hi! So this is my first certification exam i've ever done. I work with phones pretty daily and figured i'd try my hand at getting a CCNA in it. I got the exam book for this test that Cisco offers but i really believe that it wasn't enough. I started taking the Boson Exam Environment practice tests and the questions are like from a different world compared to the Cisco Supplied ones.

This has me nervous so now I'm just practice testing, and then follow-up research on what i miss, and then test again like 30 min after. And from what I read in another thread from a long time ago you need an 860 to pass this test, and the practice tests are 71 questions long, that means i can only miss up to ~3 questions. So that has me nervous to say the least.

Can anyone that's taken this give me ANY insight as to what I should maybe spend some last minute time focusing on or any tips or advice in general?

Thank you in advance!

Don't be nervous, every exam is different. When you start, your exam is download from Cisco and you get popped a window saying you need X Points to pass. You get points based in a value of how hard the question is, there are no standards so don't be nervous.

Don't focus too much on the exam, be sure to know everything there is to the 210-060 topics in the Cisco website. Create a checklist and value yourself on each topic one by one. Also the casual advises are, try chill the day before, eat well, sleep well and be there 30m earlier.

Yeah sunday i'm going to relax, maybe take 1 or 2 practice tests and just chill. This cert has such a small window for failure, is this normal with all CCNA certs? (i.e., can miss 3 questions total...)

The biggest thing to watch out that can make you fail is hitting Next on a simulation without answering all the questions inside it, so watch that out.

Whelp. Took the test, failed it. Realized very early that the stuff in the CiscoPress book w/ the tests barely applied to most of the test. The practice tests especially. Even the Boson exams i been taking the last 3 days had nothing on the questions i was actually asked. Really disappointed, but a learning experience.

I feel your disappointment. I recently did exactly the same. CiscoPress book, Boson practice exam. Failed. I'm trying to figure out exactly what I need to know, instead of "Describe CUCM components and their functions", which I feel is quite open-ended.
