Anyone else taking the CFE and can give insight to whether the actual test was the same questions from the review/practice questions? Any study tips? FYI they are also changing their proctoring system in July. Thank you!

Pretty similar! I passed all 4 on first try. I did all the questions one time thru. And then went back and repeated all the ones I missed until I got to 100% correct. And then took the exams

I heard rumors that the questions were the same as the practice questions, but that's not true. However, some will look very similar. At the end of the day, though, if you put the time in to study and understand the concepts rather than memorizing the answers to multiple questions, you'll be fine. When answering review questions, try to think through what you actually know about the topic rather than just trying to answer a MC question. It'll help reaffirm what you know.

Just took financial last night and noticed it was only 100 questions. Correct on questions being pretty similar to the prep course but not the same. Did anyone find any sections a little more difficult than the prep course questions?

When I took the Fraud Prevention and Deterrence section there were A LOT of detailed questions about the Treadway Commission and other concepts that I did not review in depth. Still passed.

I took it last fall and they were similar but not the same questions. Just keep doing the practice questions and tests over and over.

What’s the proctoring system changing to? I gotta take it too

Think you can still do it virtually, just googling them looks like it’s just a different system I just don’t know how different. Would assume you’re still on camera and mic on tho

Thank you all to your responses too! How do y’all even take these so quickly, there’s so many questions.

I wrote the exam about 2 years ago, and from what I can tell, they are just adding security to the exam process, similar to other designations. Historically you could write and have your notes beside you etc. but it looks like now your test writing will be monitored.
