sorry for the delay in posting guys ive been nowhere near an internet connection for a while. Anyway to my second attempt to the CCIE SP lab. You should note the title. As previously discussed before i narrowly failed my first attempt by my reckoning 3%. This time I failed with about 40%. Lets just say that the amount of things to do in my second attempt and the hardness of it was like 100000% more. I will say this - this was easily the hardest exam i have seen - even harder than the R&S lab which i thought i would never say. The score reflects badly but the areas where they made you trip up i fell into with a bang. Of course these areas were the most important ones where all your traffic should run (but in my case couldnt cause i couldnt get it working).
Before anyone asks what i had in the exam - i shall say one thing "read the blueprint - and when i say read the blueprint i mean read the blueprint". Nothing was missed from this.
thanks michael. No im not sitting it again there is no point but for personal satisfaction. That was the second and final attempt for me on this one. Not to worry at least i can spend time with my wife and kids now and not be banging on routers 24*7.
