Certification Exams and Tricky Language
I know this is a non-certification forum but I just want to ask a general question about exams. Is it even possible to get a perfect score on one? Theoretically, I know it is; but it seems like some of the questions are intentionally designed to prevent people from doing that. For example, in the book I'm using there is a question that asks what type of attack is designed to trick users into revealing their web site credentials. The answer is phishing. I missed this one a lot because of that phrase. What in the world are web site credentials? Another one has a user who is not allowed to access certain files and asks what security principle this exemplifies. The correct answer is separation of duties, but one of the other choices is Least Privilege. It seems very confusing because of the use of the word 'allowed.'These are just examples of what I mean. I suppose it's the same with other exams as well. I would like to get a perfect score when I take mine, but I don't see it happening.
