"I have used the [this] text for four years now and it has been an outstanding resource for teaching my students the fundamentals of contemporary auditing. Text discussions and end-of-chapter applications help me to develop students' critical analysis and judgment skills, sensitivity and responses to ethical dilemmas, and understanding and appreciation of the essential role of professional skepticism in auditing. My impression based on use of successive editions of the text is that the authors have worked very hard to ensure it is up-to-date as auditing standards and related guidance evolve and audit-relevant events occur in the rapidly changing business environment. Without reservation, I highly recommend this text."

"As a former auditor and current audit professor, I find the book very easy to follow and well written. The content is organized in a similar fashion to the audit process itself, which I think is essential for students' understanding. The authors also include topics that I have not found in any other auditing textbook (e.g., an entire chapter on corporate governance, sections on upcoming changes or changes soon to be integrated into the profession). This textbook simply feels more up to date about current events in auditing."

"This textbook hits the sweet spot of the bat! As far as I am concerned it hits a home run! Not too complex yet not too simple, the right amount of standards presentation/explanation then a great example to illustrate the standard in the real world. This textbook is well organized and presents the materials and issues as an auditor would confront them in an actual audit. I like the inclusion of ACL on the disc that accompanies the book. The ACL materials are presented in such a manner that tech savvy students can do the assignments with a minimum of instruction."

"I selected this textbook because I believe that it presents a realistic approach to the integrated audit. Having worked with several of the Global Seven firms, it is evident to me that the authors have been diligent in writing a book that mirrors the risk-based approach to the audit. In addition, my students have enjoyed outstanding success on the AUD Exam having used this text as their primary study resource."
