Well thought out and comprehensive course!

Overall, a good course. Was a bit too technical in a few areas, but provided a good general overview of the IT audit function.

Costly for 395 PowerPoint Deck slides and then a total of 125 questions, which seemingly don't match up with the lesson very well - Good overview though! Note: Unit 8 Exam Question 1 and Unit 10 Exam Question 4 are missing answers - You simply click "next" and get it correct, with no options to choose.

Hi - A useful course to set a minimum capability for my team. Would be even better if: - content was refreshed (seems aged) - typos removed (eg Unti 8 =Unit 8; some module knowledge check questions had no answer options to choose from) - knowledge check questions were less of a memory test and more practicality-oriented
