This was the BEST CPE webinar I've attended in many years. Content, instructor, illustrations, pace, ease of understanding, and relevance were all outstanding. Excellent value and most useful and relevant information. Thank you kindly.

I enjoyed this class. The format and the information was very good. I did have trouble with the polling questions not displaying timely, but this did not detract from the learning.

I have to admit that this was more difficult than I expected. It was much more difficult than typical CPE classes, but that difficulty should translate to more effective learning.

This program exceeded my expectations. The explanations and real life examples of "earnings management" techniques were very interesting and informative.

Outstanding speaker. Spoke at a pace that was reasonable and necessary given the complexity of the material. I enjoyed it.
