Or as a mentor of mine repeatedly beat into my head:

99% right is 100% wrong.

That's the evils of no-partial-credit!   I had a student once tell me
they knew 95% of the things on the lab and had it all working perfectly!
And yet she failed.  When I asked what happened, she mentioned that the
5% she wasn't sure about or didn't quite have correct was spread across
lots of point sections.

So the devil is in the details!

In a mock lab, I misread a portion of the question saying "do not use
loopback addresses when configuring EBGP". I though I HAD to use
loopback addresses...

Because I didn't manage time properly, I didn't have time in the end to
go back and verify these little things. Needless to say, my mistake cost
me the entire BGP section, even though most of the stuff was working...
