Lecturer was very clear. I feel sometimes CPE courses get way too deep in the weeds but the instructor was concise, hit on the key points and I left feeling I learned something.

JO

I liked that the presenter gave practical examples and references to the sections of the 2018 Generally Accepted Auditing Standards with such detail that I could follow along and make notes in the margins of my copy of the standards. Thank you for a great seminar.

CED

Thank you very much! for providing good examples. The Yellow Book update was so informative to me working at the local government agency.

FC

Alex made an excellent presentation that highlighted the important changes to the Yellow Book Audits some of which go into effect on June 2020. He is very knowledgeable in the field of audits regarding not for profit organizations,

LK

Awesome! I am amazed at how much there is to learn from GAGSA The New Yellow Book Audit. And, CPAs Independence and responsibility.

SG

This is by far the best presentation I've seen/heard. I love handouts because it is simple and easy to understand. I can apply it to the non-profit clients I work with and I can also share the material. Thank you for a great presentation on a pretty dry topic!

This was great learning about the yellow book rules. I have went through an audit personally until this year working for a government entity. Usually the audit I been through were in private companies and they were mostly internal audits, so this was nice to listen how much work goes into the external audits.

KM

Such a helpful presentation! Being a non-profit controller of an agency that receives nearly $1,000,000 in annual federal funding, these new regulations will have a significant impact on my work! I am happy to have a better understanding after this webinar.

AJ

myCPE provided the material in an effective manner that was digestible

PG

A question ends with a question mark. Several of your quiz questions did not use correct syntax. Also, the proper word is "compromised", not "comprised." The instructor misused the word several times aloud without correcting himself. He was reading the wrong word off of the screen without realizing it. Please improve your post production processes.

The information covered was presented in a thorough manner; however, for the most part, the material was just read from the slides. I think it would have been more effective if presented in a more interactive manner.
