I worked with the Cisco Press certification guide and foundation learning guide for the TSHOOT exam. I also paged through the lab book, but the books helped more. The TSHOOT exam is a bit different from the other two in that it is 100% simulation questions (the Cisco books will tell you this too), so you really need to maximize your hands on ability to configure/troubleshoot everything covered in the exam objectives. I'd consider spending a lot of time in a lab environment or using a tool like Dynamips or GNS3 along with some physical switches. Hope this helps.

Thank you for advicing !!!

Unfortunatly i do not have real switches and packet tracer or GNS3 switch modul ESW-16 is enough ?

you can get part of the way there with an ESW-16 module, but you can't do some of the more advanced switch configuration and troubleshooting. If you know the material from the SWITCH exam well enough, you might be able to wing it...
