It also helps you recognize the red flags that often accompany problem audits. This new edition offers exciting new cases that cover the massive economic crisis that the U.S. and global economies have recently faced. In addition, new cases have been added to the "International Cases" section, examining auditing challenges in Australia, China, India, Japan, Russia, South Africa, and several others.
