I recently passed the CFE and was looking into the CAMS next. Any suggestions on how to best prepare for the CAMS? I’ve been mostly reviewing the index cards that come with the prep material.

Studying also. Heard the exam is different from the material. Also, the study material has some errors, including the practice exam. I already messaged them 3 times and they confirmed that I was right. Just gonna go for it. Hearing it’s mostly chapter 2 and 4. Dm me if you want to discuss.

Yeah I think if you have done AML work as part of your job you should be fine

Hello everyone! I am a Judicial Law Clerk, which I have been for a little over two years now. However, I’m planning on moving into the AML/Compliance realm. I have a background in finance, having been a Finance Disbursing Officer in the Army for 6 years with one deployment in that role. Additionally, I am currently a JAG attorney and studying for my CAMS, hoping to take that exam in the next month or two. Any advice or referrals for anyone I can talk to learn more about the field? Thanks! :)
