I was wondering if the review course “CPE Self Study Course” for the CFF was enough preparation to study and pass the CFF exam. The CFE review course was enough and like if you get a question wrong it explains it well so that when it comes up in a different way in the real exam you can still get it. But when I saw the outline for the CFF material and there seems to be a lot of topics so I was wondering if the review course was sufficient considering this exam is also multiple choice. Thanks!

Not sure about the self study, but I am a big fan of in-person (or even virtual if you have to) training for things like that (if your firm will pay for it).

Also, do you work in both disputes and fraud investigations? If you do, then I expect the material will be easier to digest than if those subjects are new to you.

I am writing the CFF exam in a couple weeks so not sure how much this prepared me. But if you add Kari Day from AICPA on linked in they are doing free 8 week CFF study groups. They had practicing professionals go through the slides for all the chapters and explain the concepts and lots of good self study resources as well. My firm didn’t want to pay for the course, so this was awesome because it was free
