In all the practice exams I have seen, when you are asked a question
that has multiple correct answers, you choose from square boxes intead
if round ones.

1. Is that true on the Cisco certification exams also?

Sometimes in the practice exams, I presume they give you maybe 5
choices randomly out of 6 or more.  Sometimes then, even thought the
question will say "select all that apply" only one of them will be
correct.  When this happens in the practice exams, you still get
circles instead of squares, so you get a free clue that there is only
one ansower.

2. Does this happen in the real exam too?


Re: Exam questions with multiple answers


You are told how many answers to choose from in the exam... no
uncertainty on how many to choose.

(This is a limitation of the computer system (CBT) used. This can be
seen on other tests using this system as well)

I always thought the original CCIE Written was tough because it was
open ended.  It said "choose the correct answer(s)"  No hint as to how
many were correct.

Hansang, what do you mean by original? I don't remember having specific
number of answers I had to click on when I was taking it last year...

It can be that I had and forgot, but I'm not sure...

Sorry, shouldn't have said "original"   I meant the one that was in
place w/o change for several years.  I guess it was in play about 5
years ago.  On that test, it said "pick the correct answers" w/o a hint
about how many were considered to be correct.
