TIP #1 - Studying well in advance pays off at the end. Study every day or as frequently as your schedule allows with a time budget in mind. Start by following these three steps:
1. Begin studying soon after you purchase the Prep Course.
2. Develop and follow a plan for getting yourself through this volume of material, starting with the section you are most familiar with.
3. At the beginning of each study session, complete a 10-minute review of your previous study session.
TIP# 2- Should I guess when I'm not sure? Yes, because if there are four possible 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 - Take advantage of the Fraud Examiners Manual, which is included with your CFE Exam Prep Course.
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, and do whatever you can to stay focused on your studies.
