• Start studying soon after you purchase the course.
• Develop and follow a plan for getting yourself through this volume of material, starting (if possible) with the section you are most familiar with.

TIP #2- Narrow down options. 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.

Narrow down the choices to one or two alternatives, and then compare them and identify how they are different. Finally, make an informed choice.
TIP #3 - Choose the best answer. While answering questions in the CFE Exam Prep Course, you must select not only a correct answer, but also the best answer. It is important that you read all of the options and not stop when you come upon one that seems likely to be correct.
