Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I consider Knapp Contemporary Auditing Real Issues & Cases to be the premier auditing casebook on the market."Thomas Noland, University of South Alabama

"The cases bring realism to auditing at the undergraduate level. The cases are easy to read, they keep my attention, they engender class discussion quite easily, and they use some cases that are recent and therefore familiar to the students."Jason Bergner, University of Kentucky
