Re: CCIE Lab Price Increase posted 10/14/2007
Great story Gary and describes very closely what I went through during my first two attempts. In fact, I told my employer (who paid for both labs) that I wasn't ready for my first one and wanted to reschedule and my boss told me to just go take it for the experience. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Let he who is without lab experience STFU about how we should change the way we do lab business.
And about having more information not being a bad thing? I'll say it's
almost always bad if it's being misunderstood and not put into the proper
context. If I failed 5 times and HR or even most technical managers saw
that, surely they would believe me to be less of an engineer than the person
that passed first try. Because these people have no concept of the lab
experience they cannot possibly put the pass/fail rate into proper context.
I don't want any part of my lab scores in the hands of people like that. I
trust most of you to understand what a fail means (nothing for the most
part) but not them.
