I love reading about the fraud cases, as it provides background on things to watch out for and to help create internal controls that will in effect limit these types of scenarios from occurring.

Good case studies with analysis of how the fraud was perpetrated, motivation for the fraudulent activities, discussions of internal control failures, and implication for auditors.

Great examples of how fraud can be conducted and not be detected and how strong internal controls could have prevented the frauds.

This course is comprised of case studies and, while interesting, I would have liked more details of the statutes and guidance.
