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 $300. 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 exam?

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


  • CCNP SWITCH 300-115 Official Certification Guide
  • CCNP SWITCH Portable Command Guide
  • SWITCH 300-115 Student Guide (Volume 1 & 2)
  • SWITCH 300-115 Quick Reference

Video Training:

  • CCNP SWITCH 300-115 CBT Nuggets
  • SWITCH 300-115 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

    I find it disturbing that the “official” cert books from Cisco leave out a good portion of the info found on this site. The books will help you understand the material, but not enough to pass the exams. Something vey wrong with that picture. Thanks for all of the info, could not pass withouit it. End of rant…

    Passed the CCNP Switch finally! Twas was a long journey to pass this exam due to the recent update… I failed my first attempt, as I was one of the first ones who got caught during the update. I was using the ebay dump I have been using for my previous exams – CCNA, CCNP Route. Thus sent the ebay seller a message that there has been an update, and he sent me an update of his materials with 20 new questions. He had informed me that there were no new simulations, which is correct, as I received the same sims before the update. Thus studied the new questions and passed the exam this morning! I would like to thank this community for their loving and caring support!
    Info to the exam:

    LACP-STP Simulation
    AAAdot1x Simulation
    HSRP TShooting Simlet
    VTPv3 TShooting Simlet
    32 Multiple Choice Questions.

    This site seems to be very helpful, however if you want to use the materials I used, here you go:

    I have been reviewing the 191q dump and the HIKO 21 new questions and am looking for these files in either a VCE form or with the correct answer and explanations in a separate file? I know the questions are valid as I took the test and barely missed it last week, but with the help of these two questions sets, I am ready to retake this week.

    For anyone looking for the latest dumps, search the comments section for a link posted by Waleed Naeem who has put together all of the valid questions and paired them explanations and references of where the information comes from. I was skeptical of this site at first, but after studying, failing, then reading the current dumps, I am amazed that this site exists and has such valuable information.
