  • “It is rare that i can actually say that I enjoyed a CPE course but I found this one informative and very interesting, relying more on the author’s examples and not just quoting tax code!  [Healthcare Reform: The affordable Care Act Tax Provisions]

  • I wanted to compliment you on the Accounting Fraud – Recent Case Studies (AUCASEMC) course I just took. The ebook was fantastic! Concise, easy to understand, very well structured, and very interesting. Exactly the way I like it. Thank you for putting it together. I feel it took me enough time to be worth 2 CPEs, but it was fantastic nonetheless. Thank you.
