TIP #1 - Preparing for the CFE Exam begins with a conscious decision to start studying. We recommend that you begin studying with your strongest area to develop a comfort level with the material and the Prep Course process. To begin a session, select one of the four main sections and begin answering the questions. After you choose an answer and click the Submit Answer button, the answer you chose, along with the correct answer will be displayed in a bar in the middle of the screen.
TIP #2 - Read each question carefully. While answering
questions in the CFE Exam Prep Course it is important that you read all
of the options and not stop when you come upon one that seems likely. Eliminate some
choices you know are incorrect, and then relate each remaining answer choice
back to the question to see if it fits. Narrow down the choice to one or two
alternatives, and then compare them and identify how they are different.
Finally, make an informed choice.
TIP #3 - Qualify for the Money-Back Pass
Guarantee. To qualify for the Money-Back Pass Guarantee, you are
required to answer each question at least once. In addition, you must earn a
score of 85% or better on all four sections of the Practice Exam.
ACFE Vice President - Education, John D. Gill, J.D., CFE, offers advice on how to qualify for the Money-Back Pass Guarantee as you prepare for the CFE Exam.
Congratulations to all members who became Certified Fraud Examiners in the last 60 days. More
