Will EY reimburse for this cost? ... I’m in audit and looking to transfer to forensics. But don’t know anyone else who is taking the exam

Just gotta make time for it, it's not too difficult honestly.

Answer the questions in the review program, take the practice exam, ace it on the first try. I did practice questions 30 minutes a night for two weeks and took each practice exam twice and passed. That was my lazy but don’t want to be an idiot and fail approach. I’m sure you could do it in 4 days if you wanted.

what’s the best study material for the CFE?

MCQs and practice exams offered by ACFE site. Very similar to the actual exam.
