It's Thursday, May 16, and time for a new CCNA and CCENT practice exam!
Let's get started!
1. Short answer: When you look at an entry in your Cisco router's routing table, you'll see two separate numbers in brackets. Name the purpose of each.
2. Between the two versions of RIP, which version sends updates out more often?
C. Updates are sent by both versions at the exact same rate
D. RIP does not have a fixed time for updates
3. Identify the true statements regarding the debug ip packet command.
A. The command output is verbose and can overwhelm the router
B. This command will show you whether the packets are even leaving the router.
C. Must be run in privileged mode
D. Will show you both the source and destination MAC address of the packets.

And now... the answers!
1. The first number in the brackets is the administrative distance of the route, and the second is the route metric.
2. (C) RIP versions 1 and 2 definitely have differences, but the update timer isn't one of them. By default, both versions send full updates out every 30 seconds.
3. (A, B). You do have to use this command with care, since it's going to give you a LOT of information (even in a lab environment), and it will show you whether the packets are leaving the router.
It will show you the source and destination IP addresses, but not the MAC addresses.
Here's a video from my YouTube CCNA and CCENT channel to give you more help with debugging.
