Knapp's CONTEMPORARY AUDITING: REAL ISSUES AND CASES, Eighth Edition, uses real-world cases to acquaint you with the work environment of auditors. It also helps you recognize the red flags that often accompany problem audits. This new edition offers exciting new cases that cover the massive economic crisis that the U.S. and global economies have recently faced. In addition, new cases have been added to the "International Cases" section, examining auditing challenges in Australia, China, India, Japan, Russia, South Africa, and several others. The eighth edition fully integrates risk assessment standards recently adopted by the auditing community. What better training for the real world of auditing than to learn by studying real companies and situations!
"Thank you for the great casebook. I have used this for over 10 years in my graduate cases with great success."
"Students' participation is noticeable when the case touches a conflict between personal and professional issue."
"My experience with the Knapp casebook has been incredibly positive. The cases are so well written that I have never had a complaint about the readability of the cases. I have often custom published a casebook with just the cases that I plan to use and that has always been a very easy process."
