Sigh….

OK. Lets talk about my recent frustration with the Cisco exams, and what they give you as studying tools on learningnetwork.cisco.com. I am taking my SWITCH tomorrow and I am going through all of my test preparation material. I recently discovered the review questions that are available to registered users. Great, I feel very confident in my ability to answer these questions. Took the first Set of questions, scored a 78% ??? OK i looked at the questions I got wrong and took notes. Took set 2……scored a 66% ?? WAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTT. Hold on. The answers to SONA, Wireless, and Technical vs. Organizational goals are totally bogus. So i started reading the posts from other users on these “review” questions. These start around 2010 might I add. A lot of these questions are marked and proven to be wrong. For example…

Goals

Since when is increasing revenue a technical goal?? I can kind of see how increasing competitiveness could be a goal (Google, Amazon, FB…etc). Network management, Security, and Reliability are clearly the correct choice.

SONA

Page 6 of the CCNP SWITCH Quick Reference guide that comes with the video mentor clearly states that Network Infrastructure, Interactive Services, and Applications are the three layers. Nice try to throw me off, make me fail, and get another $200 for my retake. (Book and online review questions created in the same year…2010 might I add) OCG written by Hucaby……No mention of SONA…printed 2011 6th printing.

Tighten it up CISCO!!!!

    Those questions are user submitted if I remember correctly, so take that for what’s its worth.

    However they should bring some validation to them.
