Auditing: A Practical Approach is not just another auditing text.
As the title suggests, this textbook focuses on how audits are conducted in practice and provides a very different approach to studying auditing. The practical orientation of the text will provide greater insight into how an audit is conducted and the issues that are of greatest concern to practising auditors.
The text introduces the various stages of an audit in a succinct and understandable manner. As a student studying auditing, you will be well supported with:
- a clear and succinct writing style
- unique pedagogical features including a flowchart that depicts the stages of an audit with progress highlighted through the text
- a hypothetical case study that provides a continuing example of how the concepts discussed may apply in practice
- end-of-chapter activities.
Wiley wishes you success in your accounting studies.
