Please excuse the language…

This morning I failed the CCIE R&S written with 63% (70% required).
You get 2 hours, plus 30 minutes for non native speakers, for 100 questions which are quite random. They even have errors in them like listing IP addresses and leaving the first octet off, very helpfull in all.

Enough ranting, here’s my score:

  • General networking theory: 100% πŸ™‚
  • Bridging and LAN switching: 48% 😐
  • IP : 80% πŸ™‚
  • IP routing: 71%
  • QoS: 80% πŸ™‚
  • WAN: 50% 😐
  • IP multicast: 14% πŸ™
  • Security: 67%
  • Enterprise Wireless mobility: 33% πŸ™

So I need to work on WAN (F/R) and multicast, mcast is heavilly tested imho. WLAN was only 3 questions so not sure I want to spend too much time on that… Bridging and LAN switching has more questions so is probably time better spent. Watch the CCIE pages for more quick ref topics, as I’ll be working on improving my knowledge to pass the written next time.

I’m not allowed to retake the exam before May 15th so I’ll resit the exam next monday or tuesday.
