I'm pretty much at a loss at this point. 798 both times. I work break/fix at an ISP, I do this all day long every single day and I can't manage to get passed this one. Passed SWITCH on the second attempt with a 968, ROUTE on the first shot with a 900, but TSHOOT has just been out of my grasp.

Traceroute and ping giving different results. Show run and show run int showing different outputs. OSPF routes in a routing table with no OSPF neighbor established. I'm about to give up.

Is there some sort of method people use to pass this thing? I have come across at least three tickets in my two attempts that have multiple things technically wrong and I end up trying to find a solution that Cisco isn't looking for.

Thank you for reassuring me that I picked the right path by not following anymore Cisco exams.

Are you certifying with another vendor? If you are, how have those exams been?

Cisco simulation software is very bugged. In every one of my tree TSHOOT attempts I found conflicting info from different show commands. We can't complain of this on internet because of the NDA. If you file a ticket they just call you a liar.

I'll give some advises trying my best not to brake the NDA. Don't trust traceroute, only use ping. If "show running-conf" and another "show" command show conflictin info, trust the other command. If you find a configuration without any aparent misconfiguration but pings just misteriously fail in some device, just chose a random answer from that device and don't waste time in that ticket. If you fail, take the exam a few weeks later (more than one), if your lucky there will be no bugs next time. Also be extra careful with the multiple choice questions, if you have to chose several answers and just one of them is wrong then the you get 0 as if every answer was wrong. I love when after the exam I check cisco white papers to see if I got a question right and different papers give you different answers.

Good luck in your next attemp.

There was a GRE question that for sure forced you to select an answer that was incorrect. I know because it made you select three commands when only two were needed. As soon as I got home I checked the OCG and the Cisco white papers on the topic and both confirmed that only two commands we're required. Beyond frustrating.
