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 - Do I have to take the Pre-Assessment? No, you do not have to take the Pre-Assessment; it is optional and can only be taken one time. It is designed to identify your topical strengths and weaknesses, which will allow you to structure your work with the CFE Exam Prep Course effectively and efficiently.
TIP #3 - The Fraud Examiners Manual gives you a more detailed explanation of the answer to each study question. ,
In this video, ACFE Vice President - Education, John D. Gill, J.D., CFE, offers advice on how to take advantage of the Fraud Examiners Manual, which is included with your CFE Exam Prep Course.
TIP #4 - Stay focused. This is the key to a good understanding. If you are studying at home, choose an area that will serve as your study headquarters. Make sure you have good lighting, minimal distractions, and enough room to be comfortable. Disconnect your home phone, turn off your cell phone do whatever you can to stay focused on your studies.
