All Cisco exams are difficult and require a broad working knowledge of the subject, as indicated by the competencies for that exam. The exam questions are rarely precise, and students should take note of the following considerations when choosing an answer:
All choices can be correct. Choose the most correct.
All choices can be incorrect. Choose the least incorrect.
After choosing an answer, apply the answer back to the question. The answer must answer the question. This tip might sound redundant, but often, when applying what at first glance appears to be the correct answer back to the question, you realize that the answer is not correct for the question the way it is written.
Questions and answers usually apply to the default behavior of Cisco products, not to workarounds or very advanced configurations, unless specified in the question and answer.
Look for similar questions or questions that relate to the same topic. Sometimes, one question might provide hints for answering another question.
Read all questions carefully because a word such as must or not can make a huge difference in the correct answer.
The following questions and answers are for Exam 642-531, Cisco IDS. The questions cover the core competencies required for this exam and are similar to the questions you will encounter when taking the exam. Each question has at least four possible answers. Read each of the choices and choose the one that best answers the question. Remember that in the real exam, you will not have a chance to review previous questions; see Chapter 1, "Introduction to Cisco Certification," for more details.
