Knapp's CONTEMPORARY AUDITING: REAL ISSUES AND CASES, UPDATE, 7th Edition helps students recognize the red flags that often accompany problem audits. The use of real-world cases acquaints students with the work environment of auditors. The updated 7th edition offers an exciting new case describing the 2007 collapse of New Century Financial Corporation which signaled the beginning of the subprime mortgage crisis in the United States. The new case addresses Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and PCAOB AS #5 to keep you up-to-date. In addition, a new "International Cases" section examines auditing challenges in Australia, China, India, Japan, Russia, South Africa, and several others. The updated 7th Edition fully integrates risk assessment standards recently adopted by the auditing community. Professors can use this casebook to supplement the first undergraduate auditing course, as a primary text for a second undergraduate auditing course, or a graduate-level auditing seminar. Selected cases in this text also are suitable for use in financial accounting courses and may be customized into a unique casebook at http://custom.cengage.com/makeityours/knapp7e/.
