Default ERM or Foundations of CFE Exam First?

Hi there,

I have pretty much decided that I will be writing the Corp Fi and ERM FSA track. My question now is: Which exam is recommended to write first/ which exam do people generally write first? The ERM exam, or the Foundations of CFE exam? I will be writing my first exam in April.

I am pretty much indifferent between the two, but am curious what the norm is and why.

The recommended order is to take ERM before CFE. There is probably a little bit of an advantage to doing it in that order, but to be honest, they are independent enough that the order won't convey much of an advantage.
