  • 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.

  • Overall I was very pleased with the course. Previously I knew just enough about pivot tables to be dangerous. Now I see the power that they have and I feel much more confident using pivot tables. The course materials were very clear and well prepared. I’ll be looking at your website for future CPE hours.
