ABSTRACT:

The purpose of this case is to provide auditing students with an opportunity for applied learning in a realistic audit setting. The objectives of the case are: (1) to introduce students to the applied use of audit documentation, including the audit program and work papers; (2) to provide students with greater understanding of how various company records can be used by the auditor in his/her audit tests; (3) to demonstrate how the concept of materiality relates to the financial statement audit; and (4) to reinforce the importance of technical writing skills to effective and efficient communication of audit information. The case involves little class time, and students can complete the case in a very reasonable amount of time outside of class. Feedback from students has been very positive.
