The approach used by Thibodeau and Freier emphasizes the substantial benefits of using real-life case examples in helping to impart knowledge related to the practice of auditing. This type of approach has long been acknowledged as a superior manner in which to teach. Since the authors present the concepts of auditing using actual corporate contexts, they seek to provided students with a real-life appreciation of these issues and clearly demonstrate the value of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the post-Sarbanes technical audit guidance.The Third Edition has been updated to reflect all of the major changes happening in today's society with actual companies such as Enron, WorldCom, Qwest, Sunbeam, that have become synonymous with the capital markets' crisis in confidence. With 45 different short cases, instructors can assign 8 to 9 different cases for each of four different semesters.
