How to use the CCDA 200-310 DESGN Practice Exam

ExSim-Max exam simulations are the best way to know when you are prepared for the real certification test. Explanations in our ExSim-Max products are not limited to explaining why the correct choice is correct; they contain explanations for all of the available choices. Knowing why the choice is correct or incorrect, will provide a better understanding of the concept.

Once you have a good understanding of CCDA-level skills and technologies, you are ready to take exam A (1 of 3) included in the ExSim-Max for Cisco 200-310 DESGN practice exam. If you pass the first exam on the first attempt, you are most likely ready to take the real exam. If you don’t pass the first time, we’ll help you figure out what you need to brush up on; ExSim-Max score reports will tell you what areas that you should study. Once you have studied up, you can take exam B to gauge your improvement. If you do not pass on your second attempt, do some more studying and then take exam C. We do recommend that you take all three exams included to get the full benefit of the product, even if you pass the first simulation, as this will give you even more confidence going into the real exam.

5 stars Necessary

I would say that this practice exam is necessary for passing the CCDA exam. I see that this only has one review, so I figured I would chime in. I recently passed the 200-310 exam last weekend on my first try, and I don't think I would've been able to do it without the Boson Ex-Sims. I see a lot of people online say that after studying with the Boson Practice exams, they're surprised at how much the actual exam questions differ significantly. Well, yes, some of these questions may differ from what you would see in the actual exam, but I think the point is to educate you on how to study for the real exam.

They do, in fact cover all of the topics in the Official Cisco Exam Blueprint and the best thing about Boson is that they explain why EACH answer in a Multiple Choice Question is either right or wrong and on top of that, they give you links to the official Cisco White Papers where you can explore the topics and technologies even further. I think that's the thing that most people who fail don't take advantage of.

I think it all depends on the time that you put in to understanding why an answer is right or wrong and how deep you go into a topic/technology, not just memorizing answers to a question. If you cover that, you should be able to figure out any question that the real exam throws at you. I, personally never go for the real exam until I'm scoring in the 900s on each Boson Practice Exam for a given Certification and after I've explored the suggested Cisco Documentation for additional study.

5 stars Excellent!

This practice exam without a doubt prepares you for the CCDA 200-310 exam.

You'll certainly need one or two more additional sources for your Cisco exam passing strategy but this exam puts the icing on the cake.

Covers all the areas and is an excellent representation of what you'll find on the official exam.
