It gives me immense pleasure to present before you an innovative concept of revising AUDIT through MINDMAPS.
It is said. that “A picture Is worth a thousand words”
The picture superiority effect refers to the phenomenon in which pictures and images are more likely to be remembered than Words, which is a striking characteristic of human memory, Humans have a. remarkable ability to remember picture. It was shown several decades ago that people can remember more than 2,000 pictures with at least 90% accuracy in recognition tests over a period of several days, even with short presentation times during learning. Audit being a combination of a theory & MCQ Paper after conceptual understanding remembering the important points is also an important element in the study of the Subject.
So, based on my teaching experience of more than a decade, I thought of” why not prepare pictorial based charts for the subject of Audit??. And then I come across this very unique concept of MINDMAPS. Preparing this book, has been a journey in itself. It is an outcome of unprecedented and full steam effort of my entire team which has made thus possible. Without any bias in my views, I would like to put across a point over here, that you can get the maximum benefit of this book, only after you have completed at least one detailed round of study of the subject either through classes or self-study. As the thumb rule is that the dessert is always to he had after the main course.
Looking forward for your valuable feedback and experience of using this book for your subject preparation.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
CA Aarti Lahoti is a charismatic and dedicated faculty, sharing her knowledge about the subject of audit at CA Final and CA Intermediate with thousands of students for more than a decade.

Her passion for teaching coupled with her excellent communication skills have helped her meet students across several cities like Pune, Mumbai, Delhi, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru etc.
Audit has always been a dreaded subject among the CA students fraternity, partly because of the paucity of concept-driven training techniques and partly due to lack of guidance on presentation aspects. Aarti Mam analysed this fear psychosis coupled with the general understanding among students that Audit is mere theory. She wanted to bridge this wide gap since she always loved the subject of audit since the onset of her personal CA journey.
The USP of her classes is the charts she makes in the class while explaining the concepts and also the interlinking and detailed analysis of the Standards on Auditing. After attending the classes, students have a change in their outlook towards the subject as they develop interest and clear understanding of the subject, which eventually contributes to tackle the CA exams.
Over the years, Aarti Mam has got rave reviews for her practical yet amusing approach to teaching. Her unique pedagogy interspersing practical insights for conceptual clarity with mnemonics wherever needed for retention has made her a favourite among students. Her fundamentally sound concepts have been instrumental in laying good building blocks for students and she is widely regarded as the most dynamic faculty for Audit across India. Through video lectures & virtual classes, she has reached out to CA students from KASHMIR to KANYAKUMARI.
Change is the not the only constant. Her deep-rooted passion for teaching is the other constant.
