February 8th, 2015 in SWITCH 300-115 Go to comments

In this article, I will try to summarize all the Frequently Asked Questions in the SWITCH 642-813 Exam. Hope it will save you some time searching through the Internet and asking your friends & teachers.

1. Please tell me how many questions in the real SWITCH exam, and how much time to answer them?

There are 45 questions, including 3 lab-sims. You have 120 minutes to answer them but if your native language is not English, Cisco allows you a 30-minute exam time extension.

2. How much does the SWITCH 300-115 cost? And how many points I need to pass the exam?

This exam costs $250. You need at least 790/1000 points to pass this exam.

3. I passed the SWITCH exam, will I get a certificate for it?

No, Cisco does not ship SWITCH Exam certificate, it only ships you a certificate after completing the full CCNP track of 3 exams (ROUTE, SWITCH & TSHOOT).

4. Which sims will I see in the SWITCH exam?

The popular sims now are LACP with STP Sim, HSRP Sim, AAAdot1x Lab Sim and please notice that the IP addresses, switch names may be different (it is also true for Drag and Drop questions)

5. How many points will I get for one sim?

Maybe you will get about 80 to 100 points for each sim, just like the CCNA exam.

6. In the real exam, I clicked “Next” after choosing the answer, can I go back for reviewing?

No, you can’t go back so you can’t re-check your answers after clicking the “Next” button.

7. I understand I will get CCNP certificate after completing 3 exams ROUTE, SWITCH and TSHOOT but can I take them in any order I like?

Yes, you can take these 3 exams in any order you like but the most popular “roadmap” is ROUTE then SWITCH and TSHOOT.

8. What are your recommended materials for SWITCH 642-813?

There are many options you can choose, but below are materials used and recommended by many candidates:


  • CCNP SWITCH 642-813 Official Certification Guide
  • CCNP SWITCH Portable Command Guide
  • SWITCH 642-813 Student Guide (Volume 1 & 2)
  • SWITCH 642-813 Quick Reference

Video Training:

  • CCNP SWITCH 642-813 CBT Nuggets
  • SWITCH 642-813 Cisco Video Mentor


9. Why don’t I see any questions and answers on certprepare.com? I only see the explanation…

Because of copyrighted issues, we had to remove all the questions and answers. You can download a PDF file to see the questions at this link http://www.certprepare.com/switch-questions-and-answers

    Hi Guys,
    I need your assistance in identifying some of the changes that has occurred in the Cisco certification area?
    1. Actual test as I knew had very good study material and there are no Cisco study questions on that site ?

    2.9tut also had very good materials, question and answers but at the moment there are none?
    Does anyone know whats happening?
    Which question are we suppose to revise before sitting for the grilling cisco exams.

    Just through experience you could know all the material of cisco “hypothetically speaking” and yet still fail, because the revision of the exams was not done.

    Hi, I’m currently preparing for CCDP. May I know is there anyone here who took the Lab for 300-320 ARCH? Is there any website which discuss the lab/sim questions?

    Inter-switch Connectivity Configuration Requirements:

    – For operational and security reasons trunking should be unconditional and Vlans 1, 21, 22 and 23 should tagged when traversing the trunk link.

    The question in the Packet tracer is as shown above. So confirming how can Vlan 1 be tagged, well of course i know that vlans are tagged for security reasons.

    But seeking clarification on allowing these vlans traversing the etherchannel, I didnot get Vlan 1 ?

    Did anyone get this similation in 300 -115 exam was the question asked in the exam similar to this ?

    Did anyone get full marks ?

    Regarding AAAdot1x Lab Sim

    Tried to get it simulated this Lab in GNS3, but the command “vlan access-map” does not work. Anyone know with which iOS image this command work?
    I’ve tried c3660, c3725 and C3640

    I have 191Q dumps and I will provide them if you leave your email. I will be taking the test tomorrow so I will be able to tell everyone if they are valid or not. This questions on this website are very close to the dumps!!! Most are identical.

    I passed the switch exam with a 976. I got the ‘LACP with STP’ lab, AAAdot1x, VTP Lab 2 & HSRP SIM. I mostly studied every lab/sim & question on this website. Every question was from this website. The 191 dumps I kindly received were from Actual Tests Version 10. These dumps may have contained a few questions not on this website but almost identical so you don’t need them. The only change I made was to the “LACP with STP lab”. In this lab I put all the configuration settings under the interface (interface range fa0/3-4) not the port channel group. Every other answer came from this website. I am now a CCNP using this website.

    Passed my Switch Exam! 191Q is valid. I’m pretty sure information on this site is helpful but I used study materials from this ebay seller I came across on my CCNA/CCNP Route cert prep journey. He tends to have the latest updates for all the exams he provides. He seems to not have the TShoot Cert Prep but will see if he has that lol. Onto completing my CCNP Certification!

    Information to the exam:

    37 Multiple Choice Questions
    OSPF TShoot Simlet
    LACP-STP Simulation
    AAAdot1x Simulation

    If you would like to use the study materials I used, here is the ebay link:

    Ebay is legit. Passed the exam today. Good thing I came across this yesterday, was struggling with the LACP STP simulation but their instructions cleared up my confusion. You need to do trunk configs on the physical ports first, then add them into the port-channel.

  43. Sairam

    Hi Larden,

    I got dumps which include lacp+stp simulation, eigrp simulation and radius simulation with description mentioned below :

    “SWITCH.com is an IT company that has an existing enterprise network comprised of two layer 2
    only switches; DSW1 and ASW1. The topology diagram indicates their layer 2 mapping. VLAN 20
    is a new VLAN that will be used to provide the shipping personnel access to the server. Corporate
    polices do not allow layer 3 functionality to be enabled on the switches. For security reasons, it is
    necessary to restrict access to VLAN 20 in the following manner:”

    Please let me know whether this is the valid one.

    Thanks in advance.
