ACCY 360/560 CableCo Audit Simulation Acts IV and V Setting: Act IV takes place several weeks after the end of Act III. The audit team has nearly completed the interim fieldwork. Act V takes place near the conclusion of the audit engagement as the audit team is wrapping up fieldwork and resolving any remaining "loose ends."

The usefulness of analytical review procedures in directing the auditor's attention to matters that need further investigation. 2. How unexpected findings and changed circumstances may cause revisions to the planned audit work indicated by the audit program. 3. The need for tactful and professional behavior to the client's personnel at all levels of the organization, even when they aren't being very helpful (unintentionally or otherwise). 4. The hierarchy of authority and the review process at each level.

    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.
