As a student without real–world experience, it is difficult to predict what a day is like in the shoes of an auditor, but having a tool that simulates the experience is the next best thing. The Valley Publishing Company Case provides a realistic portrait of what a staff auditor may see on the job. I recently started a job at a small public accounting firm, and the audit case, with regard to work load and difficulty, is incredibly similar to many of the jobs I work on now. I highly recommend audit professors to use this practice set with their students and help prepare them for what they will see on the job. It is a comprehensive and practical learning tool, which provides a learning opportunity that all audit classrooms should experience.
