Sorry to hear you did not pass the exam. Failure is part of this game ....
(the part that we do not like).
Do not get too depressed becuase of your first attemp. Try to take several
days or weeks off the CCIE stuff, let your mind to rest.
After you charge your batteries get back to study and build a new study
plan. Try to asses your weaknesses and strenghts, and build the plan based
on that.

I followed your blog, read your posts - and sure you can make it next time !
