5 stars Well Worth It
4/8/2018 9:17:00 AM - Grayson - Madison, AL US

I used ExSim in conjunction with Pearson Network Simulator and Cisco Packet Tracer and passed the 100-105 in just 3 weeks. I already had a Bachelors degree in Information Systems but had no hands-on experience with Cisco products. I was scoring ~90% on ExSim and did much better on the real exam. I was actually shocked at how well I did.

1 star Terrible

Hi...how do I say this...well, been using boson software to study for the 100-105. Did it help? Yeah a little, was it worth it? NO.

Took my exam today, and not one question was even close to what boson presents...failed the exam.

Do not recommend this.

Can't return after activating.

5 stars I Passed CCENT
12/21/2017 12:25:05 PM - M - Kansas City, MO US

I passed my CCENT first time I took it with a 856 thanks to these practice exams. I did all my study with the official cert guide and did those review questions. After looking for more practice exams I saw this had great reviews and decide to take a leap of faith and pay for it. I will say these practice exam were much harder than the test. The highest I made on on exam was about a 70%. The simulation were on point with the exam. Its well worth the money because it cheaper than taking the exam multiple times.

5 stars Worth every Penny

This product gives you the edge over other candidates. The look and feel is better than the actual exam. Boson tests are more difficult than the exam itself, which is a good thing. However, please remember that this is an entry level exam, and it is easy to go too deep into the areas. I will be buying Boson for my next exam without a doubt.
