Regarding pcnse

L2 Linker
What is the level of toughness that we have in real exam than what we see in practice test on a scale of 1-5.
Is there any good pcnse practice tests that match the level of real exam. The only source of my prep is just the pcnse study guide is there any book that is recommended.

Since the questions are similar and not the same. I would say its a 4.



it is tough exam can take couple of tries.

Read whole admin guide.

Best thing I can say with this is the following:

- PCNSE is not meant to be easy.

- It dives into routing protocols a bit, so focus on that for a bit if it isn't something you touch often. 

- If you haven't used Panorama, have your AM get you setup with a trial license so that you can play around with it. 

- Going into the linked information in the study guide.

- Know how to actually use the product. CLI and GUI questions will be mixed in, along with general feature knowledge. If you spend all day in the GUI and have never touched the CLI, you will almost automatically get a few questions wrong.
