1 Which switching mode describes a switch that transfers a frame as soon as the destination MAC address is read?
2 What does a switch broadcast to let other switches know of its existence on the LAN?
3 Which of the following network types uses networking devices to extend the distances that cable can be run?
* extended shared media
extended point-to-point network
4 Which of the following is a term associated with replacing hubs with switches to increase the number of collision domains?
5 While working on her computer, Mary noticed longer than normal network data transfers. Mary investigates the problem and notices that her co-worker John has been hosting an online video conference. What is the network probably experiencing?
* broadcast storm
data rain storm
6 Which of the following does a router use to make a forwarding decision?
* destination IP address
source IP address
7 A network administrator has a multi-floor LAN to monitor and maintain. Through careful monitoring, the administrator has noticed a large amount of broadcast traffic slowing the network. Which device would you use to best solve this problem?
8 What is a disadvantage of cut-through switching?
* no error checking
a decrease in error checking

12 Which of the following are not to be exceeded when implementing the 5-4-3-2-1 Rule? (Choose three.)
five broadcast domains
* four hubs
* three host segments

13 Which of the following describes the concept of full-duplex mode?
traffic passing in one direction at a time with no collisions
traffic passing faster downstream than upstream
* traffic passing equally in both directions with no collisions
traffic passing faster upstream than downstream
14 Which switching mode results in the lowest amount of latency and provides no error checking?
15 What impact does a bridge have on a network? (Choose two.)
reduces the number collision domains
* increases number of collision domains
adds additional broadcast domains
* has no impact on broadcast domains
reduces the length of the shared media
16 Which items are contributors to latency in a switched network? (Choose two.)
* circuit delays
* software delays
incorrect MAC addressing
too many collision domains
17 Which LAN devices make frame forwarding decisions based on MAC addresses? (Choose two.)
18 What does a switch build as it reads MAC addresses that pass through it?
Routing Topology table
* Content Addressable Memory table
Store and Forward list
MAC Route Address table
19 What will a bridge do if it receives a frame with a MAC address that is not within the table?
send frame to appropriate port
* send frame to all ports except source port
20 A switch reads the first 64 bytes of a data field and forwards data, before the entire data field has been read. Which switching method allows this?
store and forward
21 Which switching method allows a switch to receive the entire frame before sending it out the destination port?
* store and forward

* ARP request
