Summary

If you want to learn how to audit, then pay attention....

Auditing can be a scary concept to people studying accounting and finance, but it doesn’t have to be. Many people are scared by the idea of having to make sure somebody else is doing things correctly, especially in such a high-pressure environment as the tumultuous world of business.

What can help you, though, is having someone clearly and concisely explain everything you need to know about the topic. That’s what this audiobook aims to do. Over the course of this audiobook, you're going to learn a whole lot about many different topics: from risk assessment to the different types of audits, all the way to how to perform all of them and file a report. 

You'll also discover how auditing relates to accounting and how you yourself can be a great auditor and perform your job extremely well.

Auditing: The Ultimate Guide to Performing Internal and External Audits will cover topics such as:

  • What is auditing?
  • Types of audits, balance sheets, and assertions
  • Life as an auditor - differences in audits and ethics
  • Auditing business functions and assets
  • Auditing human resources, inventory management, internal controls
  • Assessing audit risk and filing a report

Listen to this audiobook now to learn more about auditing!

It's a fine book...

If you're looking at this book I'm assuming it's because you need it for class and have no say in the matter, but it IS a very informative book and will most likely be helpful if you are taking the CPA Exam in the near future. There is lots of detail and I'd say it's pretty clear, though some concepts are just inherently difficult and require rereading.

"Auditing" book is in good.

This book is so current and easy to understand. Great audible to learn the Auditing in a best way. Real life examples and cases that happened less than 6 months ago...

It is well written, I will keep it for reference.

I normally don't review textbooks because I only got them for school and not to read for pleasure. But this audible is pretty cool. It is very educational without being boring. And the best part is that it comes with a disc that contains software to give auditing experience.

Very organized and well-written.

If your looking into this book then you're probably in an auditing class and how no choice but to buy it for class but even with that being said, this is a very nicely put together and well-written book and it should be very helpful in your class. Good luck with your auditing, I hope you like auditing.

Good but tough to understand.

I got this audible as it was recommended for this from someone. Pros, content is well organized and important points are highlighted in making it easy to remember or revise before a test. Questions worked well with Connect software. Cons, the content and color is monochromatic and dull. Auditing is a tough read unless you are into it. There's a lot of nitty gritty details to remember and sometimes it feels like the same text is being repeated and reworded in different ways. Not my cup of tea among st Accounting subjects. Hopefully, you the reader, will enjoy it more than I!

Making you a better equipped with Auditing.

Got this as a free copy, but for this I can pay some handy amount as this book is great.It's basically the same, right down to the problem numbers. Halfway done with my class, haven't noticed any problems or major differences! Good book to keep on hand if you're working in the field also.

A great auditing book.

The book was pretty worn-in once I got it. It's audible (which is rather fine) but it covered every point you would need to know. I would say the book has been "loved" but it's auditing....it's more like it's "endured" this whole time. Came with the answers inside though! That was pretty sweet.

Just Ok

I try not to be too harsh because I can only imagine how much work goes into making an audio book. However, this one was a little rough around the edges. The content was ok for an introductory level book. The narrator has a great voice, but there were a lot of misread items in the book, and they were quite noticeable. An easy listen if you would like another Accounting book to add to the collection, but definitely not a single source to rely on.

Well written and easy to understand.

For the author-The book is easy to follow and understand especially for an accounting book. For the seller-Thank you for getting it to me right away, I had ordered it from another party on Amazon and the never mailed it. The book was more reasonable and in excellent condition.

Like the Miz this book is....."AWESOME"

The book covers the topic very well but the the writing, however, is difficult to understand; it uses too many words instead of explaining an already difficult subject simply and efficiently but still good enough to post five stars.

It's a pretty good book.

I would recommend it to everyone. It came as stated. There are some markings, but overall in good book. And I saved much from it as it is packed with the data i was need.

My Review for this book.

The book had a little wear and tear on the outside but that was fine inside. There were a little markings on the inside but not too much. Over all the book was in good shape, no complaints because the stuff is great and content is appealing.

This is a greatly written book

This is a fabulously written book. It is not difficult to find information in it; the book is greatly organized as for as the content is concern. Sometimes it feels like the writers were being deliberately put everything in it. Furthermore, the team that wrote the book and the team that wrote the Connect questions seem like two different teams. But they did fantastic job.

A real book to learn Auditing.

This audible is a real page turner. Damn! Attestation really rocks but Auditing Services will just blow your mind. Even if you're not an accountant, this is a great read. So grab a copy today before they're all sold out. This is the one book you'll definitely want to have with you if you're traveling and you have room in your back pack for just one book.
