Last minute question: Do I need to save configs on the simlet questions?

I'm taking my exam in 6 hours, and I need to know whether or not I should save configs on the simlet questions(?)
I searched on google, and didn't find a decent answer. I'm sorry if this is not a quality question, I'm just too nervous and I wanna know everything before I go and take the actual exam! :D

No worries, hope the joke puts you at ease a bit.

The best thing you can do right now is de-stress. At this point, no amount of worrying is going to help, so it's good to get your head as clear as it can be.

My "ritual" for Cisco exams? Find a nearby Starbucks, look over the notes I've taken, sip some coffee, and then walk to the exam with the intention of arriving about twenty minutes early. Reviewing notes helps me more easily focus on the stuff I struggled with, and the walk gets my heart going a little bit. Ninety percent of the time, the testing center can seat me as soon as I get there. Having that little bit of control over your starting time (you're not rushing to get to your test) also helps pull some worry away.

All the best, and remember that failing isn't the end of the world. Every time you sit an exam, you learn a little more about what you don't know, and that's extremely valuable.

You don’t configure devices during the ICND 1 or 2 exams. You use the provided devices in the simlets to answer questions about the network.

Asked because of "Just in case" there was a configuration. Thank you tho.

The simlets explicitly tell you that saving is not necessary when you start them.

If they do want you to save them for some reason then they would tell you that in the instructions.

If you’re really paranoid, you can try. I tried on my ICND 1 and got the response that the “copy running-configuration startup-configuration” command was not implemented.

exams are based on troubleshooting technologies, so if you have been labbing up scenarios and breaking them then you know what it takes to fix them..and eventually cli syntax mixed with physical and logical will become almost predicatable to were you can spot the issue a mile away.

example being, how can to routers become neighbors in ospf/eigrp if one has passive-interface default.
