Dear John Smith,

ACFE celebrates the commitment and dedication with nearly 70,000 members who are
making a huge impact in the fight against fraud in over 140 countries around the
world. These anti-fraud experts continue to be the most sought-after
professionals working today. We encourage you to follow through with your
studies and obtain your CFE credential because businesses
and government agencies worldwide need your help.
Make a New Year's
resolution to earn your CFE credential as soon as possible by taking steps to
do so, such as completing the CFE Exam Prep
Course, enrolling in a CFE Exam Review
Course, or taking the CFE Exam.
I am your resource to help you stay on track toward your CFE certification. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

TIP #1 - Learn how to take an active role in studying. If it has been a while since you've studied, you may find it difficult to concentrate at first. We recommend beginning the Prep Course by answering a few questions from any section to simply get a feel for the course. Since the course automatically tracks your correct and incorrect selections, as well as your strong and weak subject areas, you can study at your own pace.
TIP #2 - Take study breaks to stay focused. Stop studying when you are no longer being productive.
Angela Archie, CFE expresses the importance of taking study breaks during CFE Exam Perp Course.
#3 - Know what to do after you complete the CFE Exam Prep Course. Because you studied with the Prep Course, you already have the CFE Exam installed on your computer. When you have completed your course, select Request Exam Activation Key within the course. We will send you the Exam Activation Key by email, once your complete CFE Exam application is verified.
After you enter the Exam Activation Key, you have 30 days to complete all four sections of the CFE Exam and submit it to the ACFE for grading. You must complete each section in one sitting, but you do not have to complete all four sections at once.
TIP #4 -Study every day or as frequently as your schedule allows. You
should study each section of the CFE Exam Prep Course with a time
budget in mind. As you reach milestones on your timeline, you will see yourself
moving one step closer to realizing the overall goal—succeeding on the CFE Exam.
Congratulations to all members who became Certified Fraud Examiners in the last 60 days. More

Did You Know?
Practice exams are designed to
test your knowledge in each of the four sections and simulate the experience of
taking the CFE Exam. Each practice exam contains 125 questions. Like the CFE
Exam, the practice exams are timed and you are allotted 75 seconds to answer
each question. You may go back and change an answer for a previously completed
question as long as there is time left on the question timer.
