I did it in 4 days, three days of study 8 hours a day. Mainly doing the practice test over and over again. I took all components on the 4th day.

Agreed. Take practice exam a few times.

Yes, very doable. It’s extremely easy - just keep doing the practice questions

like

Yes, very possible. I took a week to study material and take the tests. Use your company provides study time and you should be good in a week.

I’m getting the vibe that I’m the only person here actually reading the whole fraud manual 😂

Yes, reading the whole fraud manual is unnecessary.

You can do it easily within two weeks

Btw, what are the exit opportunities for a cpa and cfe combined

Yes - did it a month. Doing 8 hours or so of reviewing a section and then taking that section the next day. I did this over weekends

I am recently serving a notice period in my current organization. I have 2 offers in hand and I am a bit confused about where to move. First is giving me a kind of work that I have always wanted but is demanding relocation to a city where the cost of living is very much high, Saturdays working and average pay. The second is giving me a basic working pattern (I do not enjoy it too much) but it's allowing me to stay back at my current location, more salary than the first one. Help me to choose.
