Dear John Smith,
Everyone has a different learning style that works best for them. Some people find success studying on their own, but many prefer face-to-face instruction. If you are best motivated in a live classroom environment that allows you 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 Certified Fraud Examiner. This course, in combination with the CFE Exam Prep Course software, will provide you with an unbeatable combination for passing the exam.
Participants have on-site access to coaching and counseling from ACFE instructors as well as the CFE Exam Coach. Contact me to learn more today!

TIP #1 - Decide how soon you can start studying. Preparing for an 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.
TIP #2 - Answer all questions to the best of your knowledge. 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 #3 - If you are having difficulty with a question, mark that question. Marking a question allows you to go back and review it at anytime. When you are ready to review your marked questions, please note that the program will only present those questions you have previously marked within the selected main section.
ACFE Program Director Bruce Dorris, J.D., CFE, CPA, CVA, offers advice on how to handle questions that may be challenging to you on the CFE Exam Prep Course.
TIP #4 - Tell Yourself That You Can Do It! Self-motivation is important. Reward yourself with positive thoughts when you complete a section. Think about your values and goals and decide if you are reaching them. Decide on your best learning process for the remaining sections. Believe that you can succeed, and you will.

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.
