Passed DC lab in San Jose

Just wanted to drop a line--took me a couple tries, but I finally nailed the data center exam on Friday, May 7th.  I wasn't sure this was such a good idea, since my wife died of cancer about a month ago at the age of 37, but I had already paid, and I figured I could *maybe* do it.

So here I am.  Definitely the videos were of tremendous help in getting me more comfortable with the technology and the platforms.  This is actually my 3rd CCIE (R&S & Security), so my number obviously remains--CCIE #15158.

  • Congratulations on passing. Sorry for your loss, as well.

  • Congrats, for your 3th CCIE, Im sorry for your lost, and you are brave to make it!.. My respects!

  • Great achievement, respect !

  • And of course by "Friday, May 7th" I really mean "Thursday, May 7th".  Heh.

    When I walked out of my passing Security attempt (back in 2007), I thought it likely I had gotten all 100 points.  Of course, they don't tell you what your score was if you pass.  So I have no idea if I really did get 100 points.  For this exam, I doubt very seriously I got all 100 points, but I did feel fairly confident I had passed.  I don't necessarily know what advice I could give in keeping with the secrecy of the exam material, but I would say to be careful even reading the introductory passage for a question--there could be important facts even in there to keep in mind.  The idea of losing an entire 4 points (for example) just because you used a mildly different value is not fun.
