Some BCMSN Advice

Hi All,

I am almost (!) ready for the BCMSN next week but looking for someone who has recently taken it (ideally in the UK) to give me some pointers in the following:

** How many Questions where there? ** How many labs? ** What (roughly) were the labs about?

Many thanks to everyone in advance,

Hi Johnny,

I took the BCMSN about 4 weeks ago so. There were 64 questions and two labs. The first lab was to setup a vtp domain between two switches and the second was to setup ip routing between switches, the range of ports specified were set to portfast to they had to be changed first (i think.!)

Over all the questions were ok, know the different stages of port status, designated, backup etc.
