Auditing Cases : An Active Learning Approach
For undergraduate/graduate-level courses in Auditing, Professional Research Case, or Capstone Courses.Unlike other available auditing case texts, this volume focuses on the development of higher-order skills-such as critical thinking, communication, and interpersonal relations-and provides students with hands-on exposure to realistic cases involving all aspects of an audit process. It offers a collection of 36 auditing cases that address most major activities performed during the conduct of an audit-from client acceptance to issuance of an audit report. Appropriate for use in graduate and undergraduate level courses. May be used with Arens/Loebbecke Auditing: An Integrated Approach, 2/E or other auditing books. Some cases may also be used for AIS courses. Cases are also available through Pearson Custom Case Program.

"An excellent collection of cases that will add value to undergraduate and graduate education." - Alvin A. Arens, Michigan State University"I think this case book would serve well as either an important supplement in an introductory auditing course or as a stand-alone book in a special topic module of an advanced auditing course. It brings real-world grittiness into an academic course. The experience of working through these cases is comparable to that of an internship. The cases are interesting to read and challenging. By conscientiously completing the cases, students will see issues that are not `cut and dry' and will have to use their own judgment and defend it." - John E. Delaney, Southwestern University"I liked the Brent Dorsey case as a quick read. I would use the Phar-Mor and Flash Technologies cases as a semester-long project .... I would definitely use these cases. The case notes are consistently good and among the best that I have seen." - James J. Carroll, Georgian Court College"The Brent Dorsey case has the appeal of a real-life situation, which is helpful to students about to enter the professional world. Students will relate to this case very well. The Phar-Mor case has ethical components illustrating an alleged fraud very -nicely. Fraud is an exciting topic in auditing that will capture the interest of students. The internal control implications of the Phar-Mor case will reinforce the internal control theory learned in other parts of the course." - John E. Delaney, Southwestern University"The Runners Shop is a nice case to practice finding weaknesses in work papers. I particularly like the motivation as a part of a litigation support service .... Flash Technologies is my favorite of the cases . . . very good risk analysis . . . another capstone case that I would assign after students have already done some simpler risk analysis cases .... They would learn much from this one." - Jewell W Habegger, Susquehanna University
