Becoming a CFE is just around the corner.

Study Tips


Check your study progress. After each study session, I recommend you check your progress. So you can identify topics to review in more detail. If you have completed studying for the day, simply end that session of the Prep Course software. The session summary screen will automatically appear (if you have answered at least one question), giving your results for the current session. The screen will display the number of questions you attempted and the number you answered correctly, as well as a percentage.
