Contemporary Auditing 11th Edition

Knapp’s CONTEMPORARY AUDITING, 11E prepares you for the challenging responsibilities you will face in the public accounting profession. This casebook stresses the “people” aspect of independent audits. You learn how to avoid “audit failures” most often due to client personnel who intentionally subvert an audit or auditors who fail to carry out their responsibilities. This book’s detailed review of problem audits helps you recognize the red flags common to failed audits. Discussing and dissecting these challenges prepares you to handle potential problematic situations in your own professional career. You also acquire a higher-level understanding of auditing standards, ethical principles, audit procedures, and other issues related to independent auditing. By studying these topics in memorable real-world context, you achieve a more in-depth, intuitive comprehension of auditing fundamentals, which translates into improved performance on the CPA exam and other professional exams.
