As previously stated I had my first attempt at the CCIE Lab exam on Nov. 7. I'm sure you've all likely figured out that I did not pass since there hasn't been any fanfare or celebration on my part. But it was a learning experience and I don't really have any regrets about not being able to pass on the first go.
During the boot camp I took the week before Marko Milivojevic told me, and the rest of the class, that we all had a fighting chance of passing. Well it turns out he was right. I did have a fighting chance, but that was about it. For me to have passed on the first go it would have required more luck than skill, and I don't really want this cert if it's because I'm lucky.
So, for those of you interested, here's how my day went.
