August 1st, 2015 in ROUTE 300-101 Go to comments

In this article, I will try to summarize all the Frequently Asked Questions in the ROUTE 300-101 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 ROUTE exam, and how much time to answer them?

There are 50 questions, including 4 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 (150 minutes in total).

2. How much does the ROUTE 300-101 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 ROUTE exam, will I get a certificate for it?

No, Cisco does not ship ROUTE Exam certificate, it only ships you a certificate after completing the full CCNP track of 3 exams (ROUTE, SWITCH & TSHOOT) within three years. Once again we have to notice that you need to finish these three exams within three years (not nine years). Many candidates misunderstand this and think they have nine years to complete three exams.

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

The popular sims now are Policy Based routing sim, EIGRP OSPF Redistribution sim, OSPF Evaluation Sim and EIGRP Evaluation Sim and please notice that the IP addresses, router 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. What is the difference between the old BSCI & the new ROUTE exam?

In the new ROUTE exam, there are no IS-IS, DHCP, Multicast questions so you can ignore them if you are reading old BSCI books. In fact, DHCP & Multicast are good topics and maybe you will have a chance to learn about them in other Cisco exams.

8. Can I use short commands, for example “conf t” instead of “configure terminal”? Will I get full mark for short commands?

From the comments on this site, maybe you will get full mark for short commands. But sometimes short commands don’t work so please be careful with them. We highly recommend you should learn the full commands.

9. What are your recommended materials for ROUTE?

There are many materials for learning ROUTE but below are popular materials that many candidates recommend.


CCNP ROUTE Official Certification Guide

ROUTE Student Guide

CCNP ROUTE Portable Command Guide

CCNP Route Quick Reference Sheet

Video training

CBT Nuggets

Simulator (all are free)


GNS3 – the best simulator for learning ROUTE

Packet Tracer

10. How much time should I spend on each sim?

You should not spend more than 15 minutes for each sim. Recall that you only have 90 minutes so if you spend 15 minutes for each sim x 4 sims = 60 minutes. The 30 minutes left is for solving 46 multiple choice & drag-and-drop questions. If you are not a native English speaker and have 30-minute expansion (ask the mentor to confirm) than you can spend 20 minutes for each sim.

11. Can I pass without doing sims?

As mentioned above, each sim will cost you from 80 to 100 points. In the real exam you will have to solve 4 sims that give from 320 to 400 points. Suppose you answer all other questions perfectly then you will get 600 to 680 points but the passing score is 790. It means that you surely fail if ignore them.

From the calculation above, if you miss only one sim the chance to pass is average but if you miss two, the chance to pass is very, very low.

12. Are the exam questions the same in all the geographical locations?

Yes, the exam questions are the same in all geographical locations. But notice that Cisco has a pool of questions and each time you take the exam, a number of random questions will show up so you will not see all the same questions as the previous exam.

13. I don’t want to lose points so should I use the “copy running-config startup-config” after finishing each lab-sim?

In the ROUTE exam, we can’t use that command so surely you will not lose any points if not using that command.

14. I passed the ROUTE exam. Do you have any site similar for CCNP exams?
We have certprepare.com for SWITCH, networktut.com for TSHOOT, voicetut.com for CCNA Voice, securitytut.com for CCNA Security, rstut.com for CCIE Written & Lab, dstut.com for CCDA. Hope you enjoy these sites too!

15. Why don’t I see any questions and answers on digitaltut.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.isisbeautyconcepts.com.au/?certs=route-questions-and-answers

  15. Qu still not fixed. for jitter under part 4 new questions
    July 30th, 2017


    I put this up about a month ago and still not fixed.

    I think the answer above is incorrect.
    Question 8, it should be frequency…

    A network engineer is asked to create an SNMP-enabled proactive monitoring solution to ensure that jitter levels remain between particular boundaries. Which IP SLA option should the engineer use?

    A. threshold
    B. frequency
    C. verify-data
    D. timeout


    Configuring a Basic UDP Jitter Operation on a Source Device

    1. enable

    2. configure terminal

    3. ip sla operation-number

    4. udp-jitter {destination-ip-address | destination-hostname} destination-port [source-ip {ip-address | hostname}] [source-port port-number] [control {enable | disable}] [num-packets number-of-packets] [interval interpacket-interval]

    5. frequency seconds

    6. end

    7. show ip sla configuration [operation-number]

    I passed route exam recently, with a score around 800 (so it was pretty tight). I studied from the questions here, CBT nuggets and Chris Bryant guide.
    I can confirm that the simulation here were all presents and valid as I would say 80% of the questions (100% of the drag a& drop). I did encounter questions that were not here, but apart from a couple, they were not that difficult. Some at CCNA level (I remember “what is the default username for CHAP with PPPoE?. Choose between 1) Cisco 2) password 3) hostname 4) none. I chose hostname). Some other multiple choice questions I was a bit insecure I admit that drag & drop I might have done some mistakes as I did not remember exactly from here. So all in all it might have been that I would have gotten a better score if I had remembered better the answers of those.
    If you have a clue and did not only memorize the questions here you should be fine. Good luck everyone and thanks a lot for the good site and tips!!!!

    I was able to pass the exam with the help of you guys, especially Mr. Cisco Kid, Procyber and Its me. 470q dumps is still valid. There’s only 1 new question and if I remember it correctly, it goes somthing like this:
    “ip nat inside source list 1 interface f0/0 overload” what type of ACL is this?

    a. NAT64
    b. PAT
    c. Dynamic
    d. Static

    a. Please take time to review the instructions before taking the exam (CAREFULLY), don’t press “NEXT” immediately
    b. For MCQ, 470q still valid, 95% of the explanation in 470q at digitaltut are correct
    b. Drag and Drop – all in this site and 470q
    c. LABs: PBR, OSPF stub, EIGRP/OSPF redistribution – all these can be seen on digitaltut. I SWEAR! (even the same OSPF process ID and EIGRP AS #). Only IP changed.
    d. Eval – OSPF rocks! EIGRP: the only thing in that eval is that you cannot use “ip eirgrp topology “, so what I did is perform show ip route in R1 and look for “” network; this will display the Admin D/FD. With this, it shows I learned via R3. Open R3 and perform show ip route and look for it displayed the Admin D/FD. This FD is the correct advertised distance from R1s perspective

    Hope I helped.

    I took my exam in July of 2017 and failed terribly. I subscribed and paid $12 to digitaltut.com and followed questions and answer on this website but most questions were new and my first time seeing them in the exam room. For those that passed what’s your secret? What did you use to prepare yourselves? Please please help.
