Buy the online study guide, finish all the practice questions and practice tests so that you get the money back guarantee, and then take the real test.

You can do it in a few weeks (or less), it’s super easy.

Take the in person prep course if you live in a major city. You only need to take 4 training days from work. I did very little preparation and passed with ease

Are you allowed to charge the house spent studying for/taking the exam?

Yes, as long as you get it pre approved by the partner first.

Any recommendations on how to transfer over from audit to Forensic? Staff 2

You can talk to your counselor, people advisor and request the transfer but this will likely take a long time (but doable) It would be easier if you knew someone in forensics who could help facilitate the transfer. That way, it will be a “pull” from forensics instead of relying on audit folks to “push” and fight for a transfer for you
