TIP #1 - How do I begin studying with the CFE Exam Prep Course?
First, we recommend you begin the Prep Course by answering all questions in the database correctly at least once. If you incorrectly answer a question, it will return to the question pool and you will be asked it again at a future time.
As an option, you may start by taking the Pre-Assessment. The Pre-Assessment 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 #2 - Is it true or is it false?
If any part of the question is false, then the entire statement is false. However, if part of a statement is true, the entire statement is not necessarily true. Read through each statement carefully and pay attention to the qualifiers and keywords.
ACFE Program Director, Bruce Dorris, offers advice on how to take an active role in studying. The questions on the CFE Exam Prep Course mirror the format of the CFE Exam itself.
TIP #3 - 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 #4 - Motivation. Make sure that you prepare well in advance before taking the CFE Exam so that you can focus all your energy on doing well. Follow up on the priorities you have set for yourself, and don't let others, or other interests, distract you from achieving your goal to become a CFE.
Congratulations to all members who became Certified Fraud Examiners in the last 60 days. More
