Yellow Book Explained

Yellow Book Explained
Course number: AA424402
This course is based on the 2018 Yellow Book, which is effective for financial audits, attestation engagements, and reviews of financial statements, and for performance audits for periods beginning before December 15, 2025. The new 2024 Yellow Book will become effective on December 15, 2025 and is not covered in this course. The contents of the Yellow Book may seem incomprehensible for someone not familiar with government auditing. In the Yellow Book Explained course, we convert every aspect of the standards into plain English, so you can better understand how to apply them to an audit. The course covers all aspects of GAGAS, including auditor independence, quality control, fieldwork standards, and reporting standards. This course is useful for both internal and external auditors who work with government entities. Course level: Basic. Prerequisites: None. Course includes integrated text and study guide, final exam, and grading service.
