good overview of the FCPA/UK law with sufficient detailed examples to help reinforce concepts. Very good compliment to the other course in the series "How to integrate fraud controls into the audit process".

I have no practical experience in the area of fraud, but found Mr. Vona's teaching style very easy to follow. I now have a starting point for a FCPA compliance audit.
