Just buy the prep course package from ACFE. And tbh, the CFE exams aren’t difficult. Just use your common sense and study the main topics

The practice questions are a lot like the audit part of the cpa.... we’ll be okay!! Loving these manuals though we love a hard copy moment

Yeah I bought the prep course and just did the prep questions and practice exams 2-3 times each, then took the exam. Crammed it all into about 6 weeks and passed. Not terribly difficult.

I took the CFE a few years ago and completely agree that it's easier than CPA. Some questions were common sense even. EY did reimburse but you need approval from office managing partner if it's a second credential and I believe it was not reimbursed through the normal t&e process. It's probably a good idea to check the policy or with someone on the talent team in case there's been changes

You should search this bowl for CFE advice people have given previously!

EY reimburses prep course and exam fee (can buy as a combo direct from ACFE). EY also pays annual dues. It’s an incredibly easy exam, questions pulled directly from practice exams.

Decision - I was out the door of my nationwide ins dfense firm. Was going to top local firm with a lot more clout where everything would be private pay and I’d be more on bigger exposure cases. However, my firm outmatched the new firm, made a much better bonus structure, and said I could do more work with their complex bus lit group. I’d still likely do about 50 percent ins defense but I really like the partners I work for, and I handle own cases/take depos, and get autonomy. Am I right to stay?
