I’m home from Brussels now, unfortunately without a number. I got a very difficult lab and a rough time coming into the lab since my flight was delayed several hours due to a bomb threat at Landvetter, Gothenburg.
Right now I don’t have much motivation but I’ll get back on the horse as soon as I can.
First time = No pass

You obviously did your very best and I know you’ll get back in to studying soon. I’m also studying for the CCIE and know first hand that it’s very challenging. Failing is just a learning experience…
Sorry to hear man, in on it’s own is a learning experience. I know it’s hard to get back on after you try so hard and don’t pass. But don’t give up, and try again as soon as possible, you’ll get it.
Sorry to hear it, get back on it and I’m sure you will sail through it next time 🙂
Definately one of the worst days of my life so far. I’m over sulking now and tonight I’m starting to prepare for attempt nr 2 which will be in a couple of months. I’ll let you know how things goes.
Your failure somehow motivates me even more. i hope that will be the case for u too 😉
Keep on it Daniel – we know that you can do it. Can’t wait to hear the full story though….
Thanks, I’ll try to write something more. I just had a bitter taste afterwards. Starting to get my motivation back though.
Sad to hear, but dont take it too seriously. Not passing the first time is something that happens to most of us.
See it that way: Now you know exactly what you have to expect (not taskwise), its no surprise anymore. Take it as a bit expensive Mock Lab 🙂
Thank you Michel,
I appreciate hearing from you. Yes, I think I made some rookie mistakes and hopefully those will be fewer for my next attempt. Hope everything is well with you.
No worries…You can do it and all the effort can not or i must say should not go in waste! I know it sucks when we fail an exam even when we have worked hard for it but don’t forget that you have attempted it along with a family, job and social life so feel proud! Next time is a sure deal so take a break and hit hard!! 🙂
You’re a winner if you get back on your feet and try again. It sucks, but in my case it makes me even more motivated to get it. You’ll get it next time.
Attitude matters….Your attitude is of winner….You will get it next time.
