TIP #1 - Create a study guide. The key to passing the CFE Exam is effective management of the study materials. Before starting the CFE Exam Prep Course, it is important to set a target date. Begin by choosing a study schedule you can fit into to your current schedule. Based on the suggested study times listed below, set a manageable goal for completing the Prep Course and CFE Exam. Please select the timetable to help determine which formula best suits your needs.
TIP #2 - Test Yourself. Practice exams allow you to test yourself. You are able to test your knowledge in each of the four sections and simulate the experience of taking the CFE Exam. Each practice exam will contain 125 questions from the chosen topical section.
TIP #3 - Refer to the Fraud Examiners Manual as needed. If more detailed explanation is needed, 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 - Be Positive. Your attitude has a big impact on the level of study that you get done and the effectiveness of your learning process. If you keep saying that you can’t do it and won’t commit to the idea of learning, attempting to study is only likely to become more difficult. Instead, focus your mind on positive outcomes and on how you can use your own individual strengths to achieve them.
