As most of you who read this blog already know via email, today I took the CCIE Routing and Switching written exam. I passed with 991/1000, which was a big relief. I was quite concerned I was not ready for this exam, but I suppose 17 years of experience and a month of solid preparation was enough.
I now need to look at booking the CCIE Lab exam. I need to carefully consider this, as I need to give myself enough time to study. However, the Cisco site where you go to book the exams say that the information from Pearson Vue about my written pass may not be in their database for up to 10 days. In the meantime, I need to pull together my resources and start preparing.
I celebrated a bit with some nice Chinese food this evening, although as it tends to go, I overindulged a bit. Back on the treadmill tomorrow.
