Tips on studying for the CFE?

All I did was pay for the online program thing which is basically a giant question bank separated by section and topic. Review each section 3 times, and make sure you read the description/answer/context that pops up under each question after you get it right/wrong - especially when you get it wrong. Do each practice exam 3 times. Pass the CFE with flying colors. I did this all in about a month.
