For the CFE, did you do anything in addition to the ACFE prep course? The course is just practice questions, so I’m wondering where I can actually learn the information first before that.

Just take the prep courses like a million times. All of the real questions is a variation of the prep courses. They may words things slight different to prevent people from copying and searching for answers.

I just did the ACFE prep course. I believe you should have access to a pdf of the Fraud Examiners Manual with the prep course if you want to read about the topics, but it’s really not necessary.

Ironic... as I was just at KPMG’s hosted all day Anti-Money Laundering/Ethics training this week in DC (sponsored by the DC Metro ACFE). Alone, it may not mean much to some people, but get the CAMS, Registered/Licensed state Private Investigator and throw in knowledge of SQL and Python and there’s a plethora of jobs in the DC area in BSA/AML, cyber/bank card fraud or just plain Fraud (add in a TS clearance and it’s even better). In other major cities/hubs where the big banks have a presence, the fraud/AML jobs are out there as well.

Take the live exam review course. 4 days, end each day with taking that section of the test. Easiest thing to do with how busy each of us are and most firms will pay for it. You leave knowing if you passed or not

I agree with the 4 day boot camp. That’s how I took it. It organizes the topics so you can pick up in what’s needed for the exam at the end of the day.

Or just don't take it, because it's pretty crap. Sight unseen, I'd take a manager in a big 4 forensic team with no CFE over a CFE any day. But - I should add - prep course was the way I did it and was pretty damn easy. You can even sit the exam in bed. Though I'm told by colleagues that you can hire some dude in India to sit it for you for a small fee, which would be easiest. Your firm probably isn't covering the fee, though.

This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest. Everything is so far booked in my area that it’s impossible to get scans same week even if you call first thing Monday AM. It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.
