I've worked predominately on SOX for the past two and a half years and you'll need a good dose of an accounting background (more than 1) knowing the SOX laws or 2) doing the books for your corporation), complete understanding of the COSO attributes as well as about 15-20 different values that the lead auditing company (Deloitte & Touche or KPMG for example) finds important. Narratives are done in two different formats, 1) a matrix or 2) a verbal narrative. After you complete a narrative you go back and apply the law to each segment of the narrative. Then there is usually a Visio flow done that mimics the narrative flow. Gap analysis is also done on the narrative AND on the flow. Each final auditor I've worked with defined the gaps differently. IMO, SOX isn't something you can just read a book on and then jump into.
