    Hi peps, just wanted to know if the Cisco Exam questions are similar to CompTIA e.g. heres two lines of information and here are the questions.

    Or are they more like Microsoft with paragraphs of information tnhen the question.

    Not looking to break the NDA here, just wondering what to expect.

    I found the exam to be very overly wordy, so expect lots of text in the questions.

    You'll really have to concentrate on the details given to you (jotting down important points separately is a good idea)

    It won't be as multiple choice heavy as the MS exams. Question types range from Fill in the Blanks to Drag-n-Drop questions to Sims.

    Oh, and use the correct syntax for any simulation questions you get. It may be that the sim is restricted and won't accept abbreviated commands.

    E.G:

    Router#configure terminal
    Router(config)#


    Router#config term
    Router(config)#


    Just make sure you know your stuff (have subnetting in your head down) and you'll be fine. :)

    Doubt it, but in all honesty I don't know (it has been 12 months :p). All depends on how restricted the sim is (if at all). If you're getting the CLI to fill out commands for you using tab then that feature may be removed. Same logic with ?

    Good man!

    Ta :)

    my advice is to learn the longhand version of CLI commands - just in case!
    eg "copy run start" may or may not work.
    Remember also that unlike CompTIA, with Cisco exams you can't back go back through your questions, it's forward only.

    And to emphasise, if you can't subnet you won't pass a CCENT/CCNA exam - subnetting is everywhere!

    ...so you're reitterating what I've already suggested? Cool.

    I dunno about tab, but shortcut commands and context-sensitive ? help both work.

    I'll have to tweak what Qs said a bit. Most Cisco questions are NOT overly wordy. But there's usually quite a bit of router output and/or graphics to wade through, and perhaps that's where Qs gets his impression from.

    Comparatively. :p Perhaps time is blurring my memory.

    Yeah, the output especially does tend to bulk them out some.

    Tab not supported in simulations questions but ? "help" works.. so u can see the exact name to be typed after that ... even if u type wrong IP for specify subnet its gives error .. like I did 198.0.2.63 255.255.255.224 .. :D
