Does anyone know how the CCNA answers are weighted?

That is, how many percentage points adds a testlet versus a simlet versus
a theory question. Can make a difference taking the exam if you can gauge
how much time you can spend on a sim if you have, say, 20 questions ahead
of you. It looks like Cisco guards that info pretty seriously and I'm not
sure I understand why.

So, any insider tips on that, anyone?

Well my guess is that the simulations are worth quite a bit more than the
multiple choice and drag and drop questions, at least that is what I
heard. Think you can also count on at least three simulation questions.

You have 90 minutes to answer 55 to 65 questions. So you are not going to
have much time messing around in the simulation questions, if you get
stuck in one or two of the simulation you are probably not going to pass.
Guess if you quick at the multiple choice questions it will give you more
time on the simulations.

Re: Does anyone know how the CCNA answers are weighted?
I have been told you can get 53 questions and in some instances just two
simulations

Personally I would spend more than the 10 minutes Cisco recommends on the
simulations. The simulations also includes the scenario type question which
for example have 5 built-in questions.

If you cannot pick a correct answer then work in reverse order and knock out
the answers that are not suitable.

ARe you allowed to go back over your answers? I heard you cant.

my advise is not to get hung up on any question, there is just no time for
that. keep moving and dont over analyse the questions. they are not that bad
and time flys by. the sims take a little getting used to, the whole
environment is wiere. just dive and and keep you head together, you'll pass
it.
