I took 1 per day, 4 days in a row, and passed. If you get through all the study questions and answer all of them correctly at least once you should be good

I used the ACFE prep course. Studied on my own and took the exam on my laptop from home

Agree with KPMG1. Studied for all sections then took the test a couple days apart. You have 30 days once you request the code to unlock the test.

Took them all on one day and passed. Part of the money back guarantee on the prep course requires you do that 100% before requesting the test. Test had some unfamiliar questions, but mostly repeats.

Study for all, then take all the tests in one day.

K1 did you just use the CFE self study portal for the questions?

Thanks

Congrats!

I took one a every few days. You have 30 days to do it

Unfortunately, it’s a terrible position and there has not been a lot of interest in it in the past.
