Should I type " sh access-l" or "show access-list", please?

Thanks!

The abbreviations should work.  If in doubt, use the tab key to see if it
completes the command or parameter word

Really?

I must admit, I never tried it in the exam, but was told that the ?
command was not available in the simulation questions.

It works my ass. Not only " .. ? " was not available, but many commands were
not available either. There was a question where two routers were connected
together. One of the routers (I will call it router 1) could be accessed via
a PC ( I will call it PC 1), the other router (I will call it Router 2) was
connected to a switch and the switch to a PC (I will call it PC 2). The
command "ipconfig" was not available on PC2 and I could not telnet from PC 2
or PC 1 to router 2.  The command "sh cdp neighbors" was not supported on
router 1 either. The interface of the whole exam sucks, you cannot minimize
windows, you cannot connect to the router by clicking on it, and you cannot
skip questions for a later review. All the questions were highlighted except
for the very last one, which you could barely read. There was a huge lag and
I lost concentration to answer the questions fast. I ran out of time and I
ended up asnwering the last 19 questions (could not make it for the very
last one) by just clicking answers randomly without reading the questions at
all. ... 669 was not bad except for I failed. I do not think I am going to
take CCNA again. What's the point of wasting my money, especially thinking
that i will have to do the same every 3 years. Oh, and I am not going to use
Pearson Vue again either...

Just buy a cheap 25xx series and try it! trying gives you more
experience and you'll remember it far more better.

I know the commands you moron.
My question was if the exam would allow abbreviations.

Dude, you need to lighten up. The guy is just trying to help.

You obviously *don't* know the commands otherwise you wouldn't be
complaining that you couldn't use the ? command.
Insulting people who are trying to help you is hardly going to get you
anywhere.


Re: will abbreviated commands work for the CCNA exam?
Well, what do you think Cisco would expect you typing in then?

sh acces-l
sh access-list
show acces-l
sho access-l
show ip access-list
show i access-l
sho ip access-
show ip access
sh ip access
s ip access-l
etc
etc


what would the answer be? euh, let me think, euh, yes, I got
it, ... now wait, it should be, euh... no, I fail again...

I just took the 604-821 Intro exam through a Thompson Prometric exam center.
Except for the simulation where they specifically said the "show run"
command was disabled, I was able to use the tab key to complete the
command(s) and he "?" WAS enabled.

The questions will accept "conf t" as well as "configure terminal"

And I did pass the exam...

The exams do take a lot of prep work to pass.  I had failed the CCNA exam (2
different versions) each once with nearly identical scores of 770 and 767.
It was the sims which got me hung up and I ran out of time on the first 2
full exams.  I had FOUR sims pop up in each exam.  The Intro exam had 3
sims.  I almost got hung up again on the 1st sim until I closed my eyes,
took a deep breath then saw the missing piece of information I needed to
complete the configuration on the sidebar.

If you're serious about passing the CCNA, read the materials, study the
questions, do the labs and repeat, if necessary.  You'll be expected to
rattle off the questions fairly quickly - their way of assessing if you know
the material or are a lucky guesser.

I invested in some used router/switch gear and it has helped me out
immensely.

Interesting. The "?" command WAS NOT enabled when I took the test through
Pierce Vue

Thanks!

I do not need a voucher after all. Prometric charges only 125 US for the
exam.
