TIP #1 - Take advantage of features in the Prep Course. The Fraud Examiners Manual is a great feature to utilize if needed. The manual provides you a more detailed explanation of the answer to each study question.
TIP #2 - Read each question carefully. While answering questions in the CFE Exam Prep Course, you must select not only a correct answer, but the best answer. It is therefore important that you read all of the options and not stop when you come upon one that seems likely. If you are not certain of an answer, guess ... but do so methodically. Eliminate the choices you know are incorrect, and then narrow down the choice to one or two alternatives. Once you have done so, compare them and identify how they differ. Finally, make an informed choice.
TIP #3 - Take notes and review regularly. As you are working through sections, mark those questions you are having trouble with, and make a note of them. When you are studying, you can review those sections of the Fraud Examiners Manual for more information.
Motivation. Follow up on the priorities you have set for yourself, and don't let other people, or other interests, distract you from achieving your goal of becoming a CFE.
