This is not a tikking work, you have to analyse the things that why they are happning like this, why a transaction entered in the books and how, is there any other mode to vouvh this... is there any evidence of this, when we should ask for the evidence and who should authorise the transaction etc. etc. thiese are basics of an audit. u hav to ask abt any work u r doing.... and one more and importantthing obey the employees of the auditee always so that they will obey you and ask them abt any thing you are unable to understand about, coz they are having experience and working there from many years so they better know. Always keep yourself down to earth its a life time lesson. to get interest you CAN go for a special training course, which is of a 3 months course and for 2 hrs a day.I heard abt this in jaipur.. and I'll give you all detail of the same if u interested.NOTHING TO SAY NOW, YOU BETTER UNDERSTAND "

i think dummy and then paid up is best for work exp.

SOME diffrences i find from my collegues are:

DUMMY                                                                              ARTICLESHIP

Independent                                                                  Dependent

Stipend is good                                                              Stipend is as per CA rules

Variety of exp or work to be given to paid studs    Limited knowledge is being provide

free time for Tutions                                                    tough task to manage tutions

take dummy if  BIG 4 is not available for article    If desirous to do article, then do in BIG 4

easily take transfer to other firm                               transfers is not easily accessible

Fear of being caught                                                        no fear

Hello everybody!!

I found that doing a dummy articleship is NOT a wise choice. But the tiresome work and hectic hours of work makes me to question as to why not to do a dummy. Also, some say that the audits can be done effectively if we have the knowledge on the subject. so, it seems that learning is primary and doing audits are secondary. In such a case, is it preferable to shift to dummy after doing few months of articleship? Kindly clarify.....

i m telling the best thing, which i think is the wisest thing to do.
take dummy first...then work for around 18-20 months (minimum) as a paid-up....and in ur final year before giving CA FINAL exams...u can devote ur time in studies also...
nobody does also.....i can currently bet now in india around 40% CA students are dummy...and that is very worrying........i have seen that in my tuitions and also in my office too......
bt the fact is also
there is no use working 3 years...u also have to remember that ur number of attempts counts a lot these days for jobs......
who ever says only practical training is important not your CA exam attempts,, they definitely never been to an interview...so i believe u should work as a paid-up...where u can learn a lot in a very dynamic environment and ur work period too gets reduced.
