On Friday, and for the fourth time, I took the CCIE R&S Written exam (350-001). For the third time, though, I failed. Let me tell you, I am absolutely devastated. I worked my buns off for the past few weeks, but Im obviously missing some important piece to put me over the top.
Yes, I failed. I think it’s pretty typical when you’re at Cisco Live, stay out drinking and smoking cigars until 1am, then sit the exam at 8am. Considering the situation I put myself in, I wasn’t very optimistic about the exam. I figured maybe a 40% chance I would pass since I didn’t really even study. Are you sensing a theme of ill-preparedness and self-sabotage? Yeah, me, too.
The wife and I had a romantic day driving several hours to a small town to take Cisco exams. If this doesn’t get me some action, I don’t know what else to try.
I’ve spent the last month or so with my nose down in a book and my mouse in a Google+ Hangout window studying my rear off for the CCIE R&S Written. Too bad I didn’t pass it.

Manipulating administrative distance (AD) is another way to help with a mutual redistribution scenario.
You can use route tags in redistribution scenarios to filter and/or manipulate routes.
I’m scheduled to take the CCIE R&S Written exam on 10 July at Cisco Live, and I’ve been asked by a handful of people on Twitter exactly what materials I’m using. I figured it would be a good idea to let everyone know so that we all can determine whether or not I’m on the right track. I may get to the exam and find out that the books I’ve been reading aren’t even close. It’s happened before.
