This is the first of a multi-part series following the structure of my book Auditor’s Guide to IT Auditing which follows the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Certified Information Systems Auditor qualification syllabus.

The whole series takes the aspiring IT auditor from the basics all the way through to advanced concepts and techniques for conducting professional IT audits.

Both the book and the courses have proven of major assistance to auditors for the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam as well as Part 1 of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).

Part 1 of the series covers the overall technology underlying modern computer systems as well the role and functionality of IT Audit.

Information was well presented although at times a bit abstract. As other commenters noted, the exam covered information not addressed in the course. I am a very good test taker and I had to take it twice and really examine the questions carefully to pass.

Course was fantastic. Final exam however had misleading questions and did not seem to focus on key aspects from the course.

The course was good; the exam was horrible. Questions weren't really applicable to IT Security, Auditing or Risk.

I like the course as it fits the non IT auditors. The presenter needs to be more interactive.
