Auditing: a Practical Approach is a new textbook written for students studying auditing at an undergraduate and postgraduate level. The text reflects how an audit is conducted in practice and the issues that are of greatest concern to auditors. Written by authors from academic and professional practice backgrounds the text has a practical orientation and presents essential audit topics supported with constructive pedagogy. In order to communicate the key elements of the audit process a hypothetical case study, Cloud 9, underpins the audit process and methodology whilst providing a constant example of how general audit principles are applied in practice. With the educational trend to teach auditing with an industry and practical focus, the text will effectively develop a student's understanding of the various stages of an audit and how an audit is conducted in practice.
