So I took the CCIE Written today. Thought I had a good chance of passing if I didn’t get hammered too bad on Multicast and some other stuff. I passed!

It was a really hard exam. I scored a lot lower than usual, but still eked out a pass. Lots of questions, some super easy, and some very, very hard. As I already knew, I really need to work on Multicast. I had 77 questions total and I felt like I had more than enough time. There were some tricky questions on there, so make sure to read carefully for those of you who take it. Narbik’s class definitely got me through the exam. That and studying my weak points all weekend.

I don’t know when I’m doing the lab (stop asking! lol). Narbik comes to Orlando in August, so I’d like to retake his camp then and hopefully do my first attempt at the monster in September.
