Dear John Smith,
Everyone has a different learning style that they have found works best for them. Some people find success studying on their own, but many people prefer face-to-face instruction. If you are best motivated in a live classroom environment in which you are able to ask questions and bounce ideas off others, the ACFE has a course just for you. The CFE Exam Review Course is a 3½-day, instructor-led learning event that will provide you with the essentials you need to pass the CFE Exam and become a CFE. This course, in combination with the CFE Exam Prep Course software, will provide you with an unbeatable combination for passing the exam.
Another benefit is that upon completion of the CFE Exam Review Course, you may sign up to take the CFE Exam and earn your CFE credential within days. You will have on-site access to coaching and counseling from ACFE instructors, as well as the CFE Exam Coach.
I am your resource to help you stay on track toward your CFE certification. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.

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. To begin a session in the CFE Exam Prep Course, select one of the four main sections and start answering the questions. 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 - What happens if I choose the wrong answer? After you choose an answer in a Prep Course section 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. The bar will be green if you answered correctly or red if you answered incorrectly. A detailed explanation of the answer is printed immediately below the colored bar. Below the explanation is the name of the reference material from which the question was taken, along with the page number.
TIP #3 - Do I have to purchase any reference books? You are encouraged to review the Fraud Examiners Manual if you want more information than is provided in the CFE Exam Prep Course. The Fraud Examiners Manual comes with the Prep Course.
John D. Gill, J.D., CFE, Vice President – Education, offers advice on whether you should read the Fraud Examiners Manual before you begin the CFE Exam Prep Course.
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
