The CCIE Lab used to be like an oral exam.  Two days, pretty much
one-on-one with two proctors.  There were four guys in the facility when
I took the lab, and I didn't see them at all other than the 30 minute
orientation to the lab and for an hour at supper (supervised by the
proctors).  I understand it has shrunk significantly now.
