TIP #1 - HOW CAN I IDENTIFY MY CHALLENGING AREAS?
Checking your progress after each study session allows you to 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.
Tip #2 - READ EACH QUESTION CAREFULLY.
While answering questions in the CFE Exam Prep Course it is important that you read all of the options and not stop when you come upon one that seems likely. Eliminate some choices you know are incorrect, and then relate each remaining answer choice back to the question to see if it fits. Narrow down the choice to one or two alternatives, and then compare them and identify how they are different. Finally, make an informed choice.
Tip #3 - TAKE NOTES
Mark your challenging questions and take notes. This allows you to go back and review those questions at any time. 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.

Tip #4 - STAY FOCUSED
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, and do whatever you can to stay focused on your studies.
