Michael C. Knapp
Cengage Learning; 11th edition
Knapp’s Contemporary Auditing 11th edition (PDF) prepares readers for the challenging responsibilities faced in the challenging public accounting profession. This ecasebook stresses the “people” aspect of independent audits. Students learn how to avoid “audit failures” most often due to client personnel who intentionally subverts an audit or due to auditors who fail to carry out their responsibilities properly. A detailed review of problem audits helps accounting students recognize the red flags common to failed audits. Discussing and dissecting these challenges prepares readers to handle potential problematic situations in their own professional accounting or related careers. Readers also acquire a higher-level understanding of audit procedures; ethical principles; auditing standards; and other issues related to independent auditing. By studying these topics in a real-world context; all readers achieve a more intuitive and in-depth comprehension of auditing fundamentals; which translates into improved performance on the CPA or CFA exam and other professional examinations.
