TIP #1 - Know what to do after you complete the CFE Exam Prep Course. When you have completed your course, we will send you the Exam Activation Key. After you enter the exam key, you have 30 days to complete all four sections of the CFE Exam and submit it to the ACFE for grading. I recommend the first section you take of the CFE Exam be the section you studied last in the Prep Course. 

TIP #2 - Why should I guess when I am not sure? 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 - Multiple Choice. 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.

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.
