Last time I checked (5 years ago or something like that) I got so put off 
I never considered getting a Cisco certification again.

The web example question was "how many usable /26 do you have in a /24" 
and the answer was "2". Right. Like ANYONE has ever IN THE REAL WORLD used 
a Cisco router without "ip subnet-zero" and "ip classless" since 1995.

I hope this has improved since I last looked at it.
