I'd say 80% plus of the time, filing and cleaning points and setting the gap correctly will get you a spark. Like Jarhead said, a meter is very handy if getting the points right doesn't do the trick. A shorted kill switch happens often enough, so simply disconnecting it and testing is another step to try. A failed coil can usually be determined using a meter. A capacitance meter can give an idea of the condenser, but it's not an absolute determination. Old condensers do leak and fail.
