I just passed the exam today. Nearly all of the questions on the exam came from these practice questions. I printed out every page, put them in a binder, and went through a lot of them. HOWEVER - not all of the answers provided here or other sites that I PAID for are correct. So research and feel confident with what you choose. ALSO, I found that not all of the people making comments below each question actually understand what the question is asking. Do not rely solely on the comments. If you know everything in here, the Wolfsburg and Basel articles, Egmont guidance, EU Directives, and FATF 40...you should be good. Always be sure to read the manual. It helps going through the questions and looking in the manual to see the info behind it. That helped me retain info more than just reading.

Just passed today. All I can say is...do not hesitate on the extra contributor questions. A few bucks gives you alot of questions on the exam to study. I was hesitant. I studied the book (chapter 3 and 4 2x), studied the free questions on this website, did the practice exams and 2 weeks prior to my exam I decided to go for the extra questions. Worth it. Im telling you. This is an honest review, alot of the extra questions that you pay for are on the exam at least between Jan and March 2022 it seems. Even though some answers given by the system are not correct. I learned so much by trying to do my own research on finding the correct answers. Alot of questions come from this site. I say 70 to 80%. I had no questions about credit cards. Only 1 question about fifth EU directive was about specifics in the directives. the rest what's just the function and how they help with the fight against ML/TF. The same with OFAC and Patriot Act. Just know the difference between the 2. I had more risks , compliance questions and investigation scenarios. I wish everyone the best.

Passed the exam today and this site helped so much. Advice: go through the questions with the study guide, familarise the content and the structure. Try to establish links between certain aspects of the questions in order to find the answer. ELIMINATE non answers. I found the questions with multiple outcomes much easier by getting rid of the answers I knew were wrong. Some questions are plain obvious, others are designed to catch you out with the wording. LEARN ASPECTS OF CHAPTER 2, if you are experienced in AML and have a background most of the scenario based questions you will have knowledge or at least awareness of. The 'theory' based stuff in Chapter 2 is something you are less likely to come across so it is important to learn this as this comes up in many forms/questions. All in all, use the resources provided by ACAMS and on here and you'll be fine. Good luck.

Passed the exam today. For me, none of the practice questions were on the exam. Same scenarios, just worded differently. Exam topics is a great study tool to use with the ACAMS study guide, the discussions were helpful. I reviewed every answer and fact-checked them using the ACAMS study guide. If you want to familiarize yourself with the theories then Exam topics is the way to go! So glad I found it two weeks before the test! There were Wolfsberg, FATF 40, 5th Directive, and Egmont Group questions on the actual test. So make sure to study and you will be fine.

Passed the exam today. As others have shared, there are questions from here (~ 70%) for me. I only studied part 2 of the study guide as they are theory, the rest mostly based on common senses. Also read through all the questions here once, for those i got the answers wrong, I read the comments and screenshots to review later 😃 Good luck 😉

I just passed my exam today and let me tell you - this website was a LIFE SAVER. if i didn't study this i would have failed 100%. Make sure you get the contributor access for all the questions, about 70-80% of the questions came from this website. Also know Egmont, FATF, USA Patriot Act, Wolfberg and the EU directives (including the 5th directive). Do you due diligence, not all the answers provided are correct - check the discussion comments and do your own research! Good luck everyone!

I just passed today the exam Thanks to this website, similar questions came in exam but you need to figure the right answer as not all answers are correct here. My advice is to read the material many times.

part2: Many questions can be solved by eliminating crap, so read carefully - maybe you can answer the question even if you don't know what's right. Eg: "What REPUTATIONAL risk consequence could..." - only one of the answers is reputational risk. Many answers on examtopics are not correct - you have to double and triple check them all (thus you learn the most :). While some people leave great comments and references, many write total crap and just create confusion. I also used VCE player/designer, and made my own test with questions from ExamTopics (but with correct answers). This is not an ad for VCE (by no means, they are mega jerks who autoextend very expensive subscription without any notification or sending an invoice - beware!!!!), I am trying to be helpful. Practising on examtopics is not practical, as many answers are not true. I wouldn't spend money on practice exams being sold for VCE; they are obsolete, not comprehensive and filled with wrong answers. Make your own test from examtopics questions (ALL of them).

I passed the test online (July 2022) on the first attempt. I've read some horrifying stories on forums about online exams (Pearson OnVue), but it worked great for me, not a single problem. 120 questions for 210min, you can mark a question and review it later (they show you a list of unanswered/marked). Prepare in advance, and follow the Pearson instructions to the letter. On my exam, maybe 60-70% of questions were from examtopics, so this site was of great help!!! I found no other that is better. Another candidate who took CAMS a few days after said that 2 out of each 3 questions were from examtopics. Good luck!

Brutal Exam. They really try to trick you with wording. Most questions from this practice exam were on the exam but sometimes just worded differently. Does anyone know if we can find out what questions we got wrong and right?

Get ready to prepare like you’ve never prepared before

As we often say at ExamTopics, work smarter not harder. You are about to see a study guide that took hours of hard collection work, expert preparation, and constant feedback. That’s why we know this exam prep will help you get that high-score on your journey to certification. Our study guides are the real thing. Our study guides are so accurate, we have to fight the droves of clone test prep sites that actually steal our material. Don’t worry though, we believe by offering our material free and upholding good values, ExamTopics will always have a strong community and a coveted place in the certification world.

Your journey to pass the CAMS

Perhaps this is your first step toward the certification, or perhaps you are coming back for another round. We hope that you feel this exam challenges you, teaches you, and prepares you to pass the CAMS. If this is your first study guide, take a moment to relax. This could be the first step to a new high-paying job and an AMAZING career. If you’ve been around the block a few times, consider taking a moment and answering some questions from newer techies. After all, it’s our great community that illuminates the material and helps build something great.

What should you know before studying the CAMS?

Every exam and certification has different requirements. If this is a serious venture, make sure to read the prerequisites before preceding. Nothing is worse than wasting months studying for an exam you can’t take or passing an exam that won’t help you get a certification! Our easy search tools are designed to help you find relevant information as well and search for a variety of different exams.

What is the CAMS focused on?

The CAMS or as it’s also known, the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist, like all tests, there is a bit of freedom on ACAMS's part to exam an array of subjects. That means knowing the majority of CAMS content is required because they test randomly on the many subjects available. Be aware too that experience requirements often exist because they’ve observed the average person and what is required. You can always push past that to succeed with the CAMS but it may take some extra work.

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Remember that incredible things take time. And just like ancient monuments took years of effort, certification is not easy. It is not always quick either. But it is worth it! Our toolset allows you to engage with an incredible community of expert tech workers and add to the conversation at ExamTopics. If you have questions, don’t forget to leave a comment and reach out. It’s here that you’ll get personalized help unheard of on test prep sites, without the outrageous fees.

Always check the foundation

Some certifications have requirements going back to older exams, while others use two or more tests to help someone pass. If you find the CAMS is over your head, that’s ok. It might make sense to see if a lower level exam will give you some clarity.

If offered, read the exam objectives

The exam objectives are different for every single exam and usually provided by the certification provider. These normally tell the test taker what subjects are relevant, what they need to know, and why the exam seeks to cover these topics. It’s important to find them out for your specific exam. This can be found on nearly every vendor website and greatly informs the way you’ll study! Don’t worry though, we have taken those objectives into account and seek to create a testing experience comparable to an actual exam.

Remember that certification is quite rewarding

It can be hard to keep your focus on studying but remember that the best jobs in the world are only a few tests away. Whether you enter Cyber Security or do entry level tech work, certification is a clear, learnable, and rewarding path to careers that pay a LOT of money. They offer better work-life balance and you’ll get in with some of the major leaders in the business world. So don’t give up, it is worth it, and all this work will pay off!

Using ExamTopics

Practicing for an exam like the CAMS can be a full-time job. In fact some exams are actually paid for by work because they are so intensive. Certification is not simple and takes immense work. It takes time, practice, and the right focus. We here at ExamTopics understand that. We understand that because we have been in this industry for years and working in space full of less savory test prep sources. These terrible prep sources pushed our team to make a positive change in the Exam space. We got sick and tired of seeing potential exam candidates get price-gouged over CCNA braindumps. We couldn’t handle knowing that hard workers from across the world, seeking new skills and a better life, get tricked into paying absurd amounts for low-quality exam materials. Often material that was out of date or at best, available online through community sites without hurting the wallet. And it had to stop. You are ready to jump in!

That’s it, the next page will be full of practice questions. Challenging material. And best of all, a chance to hone your skills. It’s ok if you feel in over your head. We all did at some point, this next step is about pushing through that fear and getting ready to tackle something as challenging as the CAMS. If you get stuck, reach out. If you see others stuck, help them. And as always, like we love to say, work smarter NOT harder!
