Passed CCIE Written

I havent updated in a long time, I have just been super busy. I wrote down all sorts of things I want to write blog posts on that I am not 100% on so I can review them later.  I cleared CCIE written yesterday with a 85% yay, I feel sort of jipped.  It really wasnt super hard.  I believe any CCNP with some more multicast,IPv6 and QoS knowledge would have been able to pass this exam without a problem.  I spent close to 6 months(some screwing off with this as well and not going 100% dedication like I did with ccnp) for this exam.

-I spent the last 2 weeks before my exam(Nov 5th) studying all the time.

I read and did the following

-CCIE Routing and Switching Certification(Cisco Press)

-TCP IP Vol1 and Vol2

-Internet Routing Architecture

-BGP O’Reilly book.

-I spent a ton of time with Vol 1 labs for INE just at random.  I Need to follow their guide from now on.

Im not sure about the lab, when I plan on taking it.  I am *NOT* anywhere near the point where I should be.  Reading INE’s blog post it looks like I need to be able to exactly be able to go and know without even need to cisco as it is just by knowing commands and how things work off the top of my head.  Im really excited for this!!!!  More blog posts to come and more learning of course!!
