CCIE DC Attempt #1: Did Not Pass

Earlier this month, I drove my rental car up to Cisco’s infamous 150 Tasman Drive after being stuck on the 101 for about an hour. I checked in, sat down, and dug into my very first CCIE lab attempt. A bit over 8 hours later, I knew I didn’t pass, but I got a good feel for what the lab is like.

My preparation for the exam had been very unbalanced, working extensively with some parts of the blueprint, while other aspects of the blueprint I hadn’t really touched in over a year. So I was not surprised at all to see the “FAIL” notice when I got my score.

The good news is that I think with the right preparation on my weak parts, I can pass on the next attempt (which I haven’t yet scheduled, but will soon).

The following animated GIF is what it’s like to do parts of a CCIE lab exam that you haven’t prepared for.

    don’t expect to pass in the first couple of attempts, because they won’t let you!
