Just began studying for the CFE exam. I have access to past editions of the ACFE Fraud Examiners Manual. Does anyone have recommendations on where to get good practice questions? I’d like to avoid spending a fortune on the ACFE kit.
Started studying for the cfe. My firm gave us resources to use to prep for the exams. So far, I'm scoring pretty low compared to my peers on the practice exams. Any advice on what to do?..Kinda scared
So I am a CFE and I recently switched to a new organization that doesn’t provide CPE trainings regularly each year like my old firm. CFE requires 20 CPEs per year plus a membership fee & I don’t think
Is there a need in Forensics for a CISA and CFE?
How important is it to get your CPA in the long run/ outside of big 4? Would CFE be beneficial? I’m a forensics staff.
Can anyone provide some guidance to taking the CFE? As in which membership option to choose from followed by when exactly can we take the exam, if the entire amount is reimbursed or not? Just a generic timeline and additional required info. Don’t want to sign up yet if the exam dates are not flexible. Thank you.
Question for the group. I am an experienced individual currently searching to get out of private and into public. I am a CFE and Certified Technology Business Management Executive (CTBME) with an MBA and am scheduled to take AUD of CPA on May 13th. Am I barking up the wrong career tree to try to exchange an extensive and diverse career into what appears to be specialization within public? I really enjoy project work as the monthly grind has worn very, very thin. Opinions?
Anyone have their CFE? Just wondering what you have done or plan to do with it and what the test was like.

Any auditors in here get their CFE after you already passed your CPA? Did your firm pay you more for it?
I have the opportunity to move to a small boutique data science and data engineering consulting firm that would pay better with less hours. However, would it stunt my growth without a big 4 tag? It has more opportunities for technical growth and certifications but will push me into a more specialized role. I am mostly worried about the trade off between staying until Manager or upper senior and cashing out then. Does anyone have insight on how the two may differ in future career opportunities?
Anyone familiar with The Connor Group? Any feelings / impression? Feel free to dm me if you have any details you can share, currently interviewing there

How do you handle financial discussions with a gf that is sensitive about money and gets offended easily? My gf wants to move in with me but I'm not so sure she can live off her salary
Friend wants to go into consulting (MBB) but is not good at casing - intelligent but cannot think quickly and cracks under pressure. Would a lot of practice help if it doesn’t come naturally to him?
I’m trying to figure out what my in hand paycheck would be after all the ore tax deductions (benefits, 401K, etc) when I work in NYC and live in NJ. Is there a calculator that can help with this?
CFA > CPA > CMA > CVA > CIA > CISA. Discuss.👆
First time leaving firms - not sure what to do with my 401k. Should I keep it as it is, transfer to an IRA, or a Roth IRA. If it is the latter, I know Roth IRA has a 6k limit but my 401k has ~17k. Will it exceed the limit and if so, what should I do? 22 here, not too familiar with the process. Thanks!
Airline offered $1000 this morning to take a later flight. Couldn't take it because a senior manager on my project was sitting next to the gate. 😭
What items do I bill my time for with a new client? Starting my first real freelance gig and know I can bill my time for all the client onboarding items and background research/materials review to get me up to speed on things, but can I also bill for all the HR paperwork and email set up and things like that?
Interviewed for a position that I don’t have much interest. Should I send a thank you message?
