Passed R&S Brussels 4/2/2016

Passed the R&S - 3 years after starting, its finally over!

 

Brussels has 2 generously sized screens for everyone (24" maybe? no less than 22") - what a difference.

Keyboard is now a DELL but still US layout - practiced on 3COM K210 was more than adequate to prepare me for using it (I'm from the UK and we have different enter/return key and "|" key - big deal!)

They are now using VDI for the machines you work on - not sure if it was the lunchtime rush or some other issue but for an hour the whole thing slowed down to a crawl - typed a word, it appears 2 seconds later. Nightmate, but recovered and did well.

Diag was interesting - totally different scenarios from any I had seen previously! Maybe me worry after that I hadn't passed that section.

Tshoot - was done in 1.5 hrs and 30 mins to check.

Config - finished with an hour spare - despite the delay - and caught a few mistakes in review. One problem still eluded me and will look it up later.

I never thought it was possible to finish any of the sections with time to spare! I also have a sneaking suspicion that if I had finished troubleshooting early I could have ought MORE time on the config thatn 5.5 hrs. Never tested this hypothesis though.

 

Think I'lll be a single CCIE guy - the thought of doing that all again makes me feel ill :)

 

51884 - so f'ing glad to be here.

    Congrats Dejavu!   Give it a month. You will be thinking about the next CCIE.  As one of my study partners said, there is a sort of addiction to the journey after success is finally achieved.  ;-)

  • Hey Dejavu. Congrats.

    Were you the guy with the green T-Shirt?

  • Think that probably was me, always like to chat to others afterwards as it is a hell of a thing to go through an those who you share the room with will be those that understand what it's like the most!

     

    Good luck with your next attempt, glad to see you're sticking with it. 

  • Congrats!
