The Cisco 300-135 TSHOOT exam is one of three exams that must be passed in order to obtain Cisco's CCNP 2.0 Routing and Switching certification (the other two being 300-101 ROUTE and 300-115 SWITCH). This course teaches you the basics of troubleshooting Cisco routers and switches. It walks you through several scenarios where you follow along with a seasoned troubleshooter as he works through trouble tickets designed to test your skills in determining the root cause of various networking issues.
Intended for intermediate level network administrators or engineers who want exposure to a wide variety of Cisco routing and switching technologies, this course works best for learners who've already taken the 300-101 ROUTE and 300-115 SWITCH exams or for those with equivalent experience.
