Will I get these cases in Capstone 2?

If you are registered for the Capstone 2 module for Spring 2024, you will NOT receive these cases at the module. You should download using the links above. If you are someone challenging the exam, such as an internationally trained accountant applying under MRA/MOU, please also download using the links above.

How do I prepare for the CFE?

There are several prep methods for the CFE. You will need to focus on these three items:

  1. Technical knowledge
  2. Case writing skills
  3. Strategy

I speak a lot about these items on my YouTube channel and webinars. You can check out my latest webinar.


  • Know the key topics on each of the competencies
  • Distinguish depth from breadth
  • Debrief

Case writing skills:

  • It’s all about following the CPA Way
  • Know your case inside out
  • Integrate throughout the case


  • Prepare a study plan
  • Obtain study materials
  • Get support and resources
