CCNA Question and advise needed

Hi All ,
Today I sit for the CCNA exam and failed with a score of 759 and passing score was 859.

I think i messed up on the switching simulation.
I was telneted into a switch and asked to identify neighboring trunk ports, root bridge.
I used show spanning-tree, show runn, show vtp status, but things didn't make sense.

If you have your current CCNA, can you tell me how do i go about finding out all these things to get past that simulation.

I think i also messed up on access-list simulation.
simulation state to only all web access to a specificic host to a server from a certain host, and other host in that subnet should be denied to that server but should be able to access everything else .
And i put the following:

ip access-list 117 permit  tcp host 1.1.1.2  2.2.2.2 0.0.0.0.0 eq www
ip access-list 117 deny tcp 1.1.1.0 0.0.0.255 host 2.2.2.2 eq www
ip permit any any

No, you don't HAVE to save the config (unless the scenario tells you to). It is entirely optional. The only thing that matters is that the running-config be correct.

>Exam simulator also asked me what port is trunking to the router? what command would i use to find that information?

As previously stated, "show int trunk".

here is a link to some of the show commands

as for your acces-list, it looks ok, but did you bind it to an interface?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
"show interface status" will show if a port is a trunk or access link
"show interface trunk" will show the details of the trunks

For the ACL, assuming the mask was 24bit, the access-list looks okay. Did you remember to apply it to the interface? (ip access-group 117 out)

Might be teaching you to suck eggs, but 100% always remember to write config then show running config & startup config before exiting a sim...

i didn't know i need to do a write config before exiting sim.
so i didn't do that.

Should i do that before exiting sim when i take real Exam?

Exam simulator also asked me what port is trunking to the router? what command would i use to find that information?
