Running Head: Assessing Materiality and Risk Simulation 2 Assessing Materiality and Risk Simulation The Assessing Materiality and Risk Simulation shows the importance of an auditor taking the appropriate steps with respect to risks associated with an audit. The simulation shows that there are some accounts that should be audited 100%, why materiality is allocated only to those accounts that are sampled, what component risk is within the control of the auditor, what the three risks are and how are they inter-related. Why Some Accounts Should Be Audited 100% Accounts that have a higher probability of assertion incorrectness reported by a company’s management are accounts that should be audited 100%. For example, from the simulation, accounts that correlate to cash like Lines of Credit, Cash, and Intangibles are deemed to be quite important and should be audited 100%.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
