EOC #12 Chapter 8 8-21 a. The auditor’s justification for accepting the uncertainties that are inherent in the sampling process are based upon the premise that (1) the cost of examining all of the financial data would usually outweigh the benefit of the added reliability of a complete (100%) examination and (2) the time required to examine all of the financial data would usually preclude issuance of a timely auditor’s report. b. The uncertainties inherent in applying auditing procedures are collectively referred to as audit risk. Audit risk is the risk that the auditor may unknowingly fail to appropriately modify the opinion on financial statements that are materially misstated. Audit risk can be controlled through the scope of the auditor’s test procedures with the audit risk model providing a framework to follow. Detection risk, which is a component of the audit risk model, is composed of two risks or uncertainties: sampling risk and nonsampling risk.

    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.
