Been a while since I blogged because I got to busy. I got my number after second attempt 15 october 2008. I was really close on my first attempt but failed in the BGP section. My IGP and switching, multicast, ipv6 where where strong so I was in the high 70 on the first attempt. On the second attempt I just nailed every section. I was only worried that small mistakes and bad interpretation would cause failing the lab. My shoulders went down I saw "PASSED" on my screen. A third attempt would really tax the life of me and my girlfriend.
Before my attempts I did the mocklabs. I scored from 52 to 89 dependent on my form, speed, and minor mistakes that cost lots of points. So even failing those labs I did not in the real attempt.
