Dear John Smith,
The Washington State Department of Labor and Industries and the Office of the Inspector General for the Import-Export Bank of the United States recently both recognized the CFE credential for hiring and promotional purposes. They have plans to work toward having all current agents achieve this valuable credential. These two recognitions are part of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner’s (ACFE) Law Enforcement and Government Partnership
. These agencies join the ranks of government agencies such as the FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Government Accountability Office, the Department of Defense, and the Criminal Investigations Division of the Internal Revenue Service.
Employers around the world know the value of the CFE credential, and they seek out the expertise that comes with it. Becoming a CFE provides you with a strong foundation for a variety of career choices by equipping you with the tools you need to excel in the fight against fraud. Become a CFE!
Join the ranks of your colleagues who have already earned the CFE credential. The ACFE is here to help you along the way. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

TIP #1 - Decide how soon you can start studying. Preparing for an 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. To begin a session in the CFE Exam Prep Course, select one of the four main sections and begin answering each question. After you choose an answer and click the Next button, the answer you chose, along with the correct answer will be displayed in a bar in the middle of the screen.
TIP #2 - Answer all questions to the best of your knowledge. You should guess when you are not sure. Why? Because if there are four answer options, you have a one-in-four chance of getting that question right. If you have ruled out one or two options as wrong, your chances are even higher. But if you do not guess, you have no chance at all. If you guess five times, you might get one or two more right.
TIP #3 - If you are having difficulty with a question, mark that question. Marking a question allows you to go back and review it at anytime. When you are ready to review your marked questions, please note that the program will only present those questions you have previously marked within the selected main section.
ACFE Program Director Bruce Dorris, J.D., CFE, CPA, CVA, offers advice on how to handle questions that may be challenging to you on the CFE Exam Prep Course.
TIP #4 - Tell Yourself That You Can Do It! Self-motivation is important. Reward yourself with positive thoughts when you complete a section. Think about your values and goals and decide if you are reaching them. Decide on your best learning process for the remaining sections. Believe that you can succeed, and you will.
