This course was very informative. There were some cases offered and examples offered from personal experience and Ms Cooper's case but I would have liked more concrete examples or cases to help make this material more relatable. The repetition was helpful but some of it could have been replaced by more substance. This course has great potential.

Taking this course would help me to develop the strong foundation for internal Audit function, and I think it would be better to give me more examples to further understand the essence of the internal audit control, because my supervisor sometimes ask me to design some internal control for the safty of the company administration.

Great content with meaningful, substantive questions posed and answered. The combination of written and audio materials provided an excellent union of framework and reference information supported with anecdotal examples and professional experience, including variations witnessed in practice.

Fantastic course. I've taken ALL of Lynn's classes and although some of the information from this class appeared on other courses, this course brought everything together. I'm not in IA but this course made me appreciate their position.

The webinar was great and the speaker exceptionally knowledgeable. I will definitely look into her publishing's to gain further knowledge on the subject. There is an abundance of information on the relationship between IA and the company.

I agree with another review of the course i've seen. Class and information is great, however the questions involve too many "which is these is not" true types of questions which can add confusion to the reader.

works for what i need to renew my cpa and cia licenses. There are a lot of questions which say "what would NOT be...." and the phrasing can get confusing when looking at the answers.

This is sufficiently comprehensive and covers practical internal audit functions. Presented in a simple but reasonably sophisticated level, and quite practical.
