This was a good course. Though the subject matter is a bit complex, it was easy to follow until the discussion of the "other" cluster. This wasn't defined.

Good class. I have extensive risk assessment experience but not in Major Program Determination and I found this class to be very informative.

This was a helpful course if you are just starting to work on single audits. More examples would have been helpful with different criteria
