Use the Q&A with a question that you cannot google the answer to.
No maths or general knowledge questions. Preferably something about your board like a word in the name, the description or the forum names.

How to configure Q&A
  1. Administration Control Panel (ACP) > Spambot countermeasures> Installed plugins > click the dropdown box and select Q&A (it will be greyed out)
  2. Click the configure button then click add
  3. Add your question and answer (you need a Q&A for each language you have installed) click submit
  4. Click "back to previous page" then click "back"
  5. Select Q&A from the dropdown box (again)
  6. Click submit at the bottom of the page.
  7. Done.

The newly registered users group is useful too because then the users never see the spam posts, only the team members.
