The cases in The Lakeside Company create a realistic view of auditing by putting the abstract concepts into practice.

What are some of the characteristics of typical auditing cases that you use in class?  Do you prefer a text that is readily adaptable to your needs?

This text contains a variety of features intended to provide the utmost flexibility in teaching auditing. Some of the highlights include:

  • Each case can be used in virtually any order because each one is written as a relatively independent situation.
  • The cases offer an array of possible approaches: discussion questions, exercises, and research assignments.
  • Students can work individually or on teams.

What kind of homework do you assign over the course of the semester?  Do you challenge the students with group work and long-term projects?

The textbook contains various assignments and research questions that allow students to think analytically outside of class. 

  • Assignments: Many of the questions in this book are open-ended, designed to stimulate the ability to analyse auditing problems.  Often, as in a real audit, no absolutely correct answer in possible. Students must evaluate the facts and attempt to arrive as a logical conclusion or a viable course of action.
  • Research Questions: Many cases include a section called “Apply Your Research” in which students are asked to expand upon a topic addressed in the case.
