The formula for a successful audit today consists of many elements. Some of those elements require more thoughtfulness and caution in their application than others. In this course, we will explore those more combustible elements that can cause the audit to blow up with the budget, peer reviewers, clients and others. The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format. Over 15 focused exercises are included to provide an enhanced working knowledge of today’s GAAS.
