Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE V2.0) Certification Training

Watch demo Course

Cisco IP Routing (ROUTE V2.0) course provide you to plan, implement, and monitor a scalable routed network. Students will focus on both IPv4 & IPv6 routing protocols. The training product incorporates a mix of Discovery labs with guided learning guidelines to present new ideas, alongside Challenge labs that enable understudies to strengthen their comprehension of the topic and aptitudes that are applicable to the CCNP Routing & Switching certification. Cisco Learning Labs for ROUTE v2.0 gives you the full arrangement of Cisco IOS Software labs that were created for and utilized inside Cisco E-Learning items and Cisco Authorized trainings to enable understudies to plan for the ROUTE exam. These labs use Cisco IOS programming with Layer 2 and Layer 3 highlights and CLI upheld on adaptation 15 releases and are accessible at 24/7 whatever point you are prepared to learn.

Sr. Subject Matter Expert – Infrastructure Security and Consultant

Mangesh Dnyaneshwar Abnave is Consultant and Trainer with 15 years of experience in information technology. Worked on various virtualization technology deployed successfully with various clients. For e.g. VMware ESX, ESXi 4.1/5.0, vCenter, vSphere, VMware Converter, SRM PlateSpin Migrate, Double-take, SRM, VMware View 4.5 and ThinApp. Cisco 1800, 2600, 2800, 3800 Routers Cisco Catalyst 2950, 3550, 3750, 4500, 6500 Cisco UCS C210, HP Prolaint DL & BL Series, DELL PowerEdge Cisco ISE & ACS Server

Please tell me how many questions in the real ROUTE exam, and how much time to answer them?

  • There are 50 questions, including 4 lab-sims. You have 120 minutes to answer them but if your native language is not English, Cisco allows you a 30-minute exam time extension (150 minutes in total).

How much does the ROUTE 300-101 cost? And how many points I need to pass the exam?

  • This exam costs $300. You need at least 790/1000 points to pass this exam.

I passed the ROUTE exam, will I get a certificate for it?

  • No, Cisco does not ship ROUTE Exam certificate, it only ships you a certificate after completing the full CCNP track of 3 exams (ROUTE, SWITCH & TSHOOT) within three years. Once again we have to notice that you need to finish these three exams within three years (not nine years). Many candidates misunderstand this and think they have nine years to complete three exams.

Which sims will I see in the ROUTE exam?

  • The popular sims now are Policy Based routing sim, EIGRP OSPF Redistribution sim, OSPF Evaluation Sim and EIGRP Evaluation Sim and please notice that the IP addresses, router names may be different (it is also true for Drag and Drop questions)

How many points will I get for one sim?

  • Maybe you will get about 80 to 100 points for each sim, just like the CCNA exam.

In the real exam, I clicked “Next” after choosing the answer, can I go back for reviewing?

  • No, you can’t go back so you can’t re-check your answers after clicking the “Next” button.

What is the difference between the old BSCI & the new ROUTE exam?

  • In the new ROUTE exam, there are no IS-IS, DHCP, Multicast questions so you can ignore them if you are reading old BSCI books. In fact, DHCP & Multicast are good topics and maybe you will have a chance to learn about them in other Cisco exams.

Can I use short commands, for example “conf t” instead of “configure terminal”? Will I get full mark for short commands?

  • From the comments on this site, maybe you will get full mark for short commands. But sometimes short commands don’t work so please be careful with them. We highly recommend you should learn the full commands.

What are your recommended materials for ROUTE?

  • There are many materials for learning ROUTE but below are popular materials that many candidates recommend.
  • Books
  • CCNP ROUTE Official Certification Guide
  • ROUTE Student Guide
  • CCNP ROUTE Portable Command Guide
  • CCNP Route Quick Reference Sheet
  • Video training
  • CBT Nuggets
  • Simulator (all are free)
  • GNS3 – the best simulator for learning ROUTE
  • Packet Tracer

How much time should I spend on each sim?

  • You should not spend more than 15 minutes for each sim. Recall that you only have 90 minutes so if you spend 15 minutes for each sim x 4 sims = 60 minutes. The 30 minutes left is for solving 46 multiple choice & drag-and-drop questions. If you are not a native English speaker and have 30-minute expansion (ask the mentor to confirm) than you can spend 20 minutes for each sim

Can I pass without doing sims?

  • As mentioned above, each sim will cost you from 80 to 100 points. In the real exam you will have to solve 4 sims that give from 320 to 400 points. Suppose you answer all other questions perfectly then you will get 600 to 680 points but the passing score is 790. It means that you surely fail if ignore them.
  • From the calculation above, if you miss only one sim the chance to pass is average but if you miss two, the chance to pass is very, very low.

Are the exam questions the same in all the geographical locations?

  • Yes, the exam questions are the same in all geographical locations. But notice that Cisco has a pool of questions and each time you take the exam, a number of random questions will show up so you will not see all the same questions as the previous exam.

I don’t want to lose points so should I use the “copy running-config startup-config” after finishing each lab-sim?

  • In the ROUTE exam, we can’t use that command so surely you will not lose any points if not using that command.

I passed the ROUTE exam. Do you have any site similar for CCNP exams?

  • We have for SWITCH, for TSHOOT, for CCNA Voice, for CCNA Security, for CCIE Written & Lab, for CCDA. Hope you enjoy these sites too!

Mr.Ammar Elkaderi

Senior Business Analyst

I generally review any trainer and corresponding training program on the basis of the value it adds to the participants. Must say, this training course (my first with a corporate training company like Vinsys) added a lot of value and I had a lot of clarity on the subject. The fact that the trainers actually discussed several industry scenarios helped me to relate to a lot of things pretty easily. Overall, I am delighted that I attended this program and upgraded myself in the right way!


Mr. Kiran Raghavan

Senior Business Analyst

Training was good. Trainer was excellent and maintained a high degree of professionalism through out the training.He had great patience in clarifying all the questions and quoted very good examples to explain the concepts. Overall it was a great experience.


Ernest Williams


Had a satisfying learning experience with this training at Vinsys. Pros:Simple language used by the trainer to explain the concepts.Strong hold of the subject for the trainer which enabled him to clear the tiniest of doubts easily. Good pace maintained throughout the program.Innovative demonstration of few relevant case studies.Highly interactive session.Cons:Wish this program was a bit longer. Got to learn a lot and wanted to learn more!
