CISCO CCNA

Can anyone provide me with some advise on the CCNA exam router simulation questions.

When they give you the scenario do you have to configue all the routers with all the information provided, or just trouble shoot any misconfigurations?

Any other tips would be handy!

Yeah I had the same as PeteLong,
configuring one of the routers eg, the interfaces with ip, subenet etc
and setting up a password...

I used sybex ccna virtual lab which was really good
and todd lammle ccna which was absolutely brilliant, I mean I didnt know anything, read it from the very first page, it made so much sense, even the subnetting which everyone find the hardest...
Gerat book.

Anyways good luck

Would you loose points if you did more than necessary?
i.e. You were not sure exactly what had to be done, so you configured all the routers with all the relevant information specific to that router.

My understanding is that the simulation questions are fully interactive, i.e. you can issue show commands to help you determine the correct solution.

The link above is pretty much bang on but the problems are simpler that the one shown :)

>>Would you loose points if you did more than necessary?

The answers are so straight forward you wont :)

The questions make it pretty clear exactly what you need to accomplish; if it's more than one or two steps, the question will suggest what you need to be able to test successfully when completed -- but there probably won't be any that complicated at CCNA level.
