TIP #1 - Familiarize yourself with the Prep Course software. Develop a comfort level with the Prep Course by exploring the different tools and features available. You can use the software to set target dates for yourself and measure your progress toward obtaining your certification. 

TIP#2 - Don't overthink. When you’re facing multiple choice questions, resist the tendency to read too much into the questions and answers. Read the question once, and then think of a good answer without looking at your options. If your answer matches one that’s listed, select it and move on!

TIP #3 - Recognize alternative approaches to answering different types of questions.

John D. Gill, J.D., CFE, Vice President – Education, offers advice on how to best answer true/false and Multiple Choice Questions on the CFE Exam Prep Course.

TIP #4 - Study intensively -"If you only casually look at your material, you will only casually remember it." Your memory will always help you to recall your strengths. What you knew yesterday you will know tomorrow for the exam. However, if you don't know it now, you can't expect to recall the information at the exam. Correct your weaknesses now to improve your knowledge base and to improve your chances of passing.
