Case Set Instructions

Which cases do I complete, and when is each case set due?

See the syllabus.

How do I prepare the cases?

Start with a cover page that provides class information (ACCT 4400, etc.) and the names of all team members. The cover page should also include the specific cases or parts of cases completed by each team member along with any reviewing responsibilities. The answers to the three cases in each case set must follow the order listed in the syllabus.

All materials must be typed double-space using Times New Roman, 12-point font with 1 inch margins on all sides. There are exceptions to this rule: * Tables produced in Excel used as audit work papers and/or to show calculations do not have to be double-spaced. These tables must be copied and pasted into your write-up at the appropriate locations. * Table notes can be in 10-point font and do not need to be double-spaced. For an example, see Case Assignment 2-3.

References are important so that a writer does not plagiarize (pass another person’s thoughts or words as her/his own). All references must be cited in the text and included in a reference list at the end of each case. Examples include the AICPA Code of Conduct, Auditing Standards, SEC statements, practitioner journals, web sites, and the textbook. You do not need to reference class notes or your own thoughts. To format references, use any of the three generally accepted methods: APA, Chicago, or MLA. The Purdue Online Writing Lab offers free guidance on these methods at

An ISA includes a specification of the set of opcodes (machine language), and the native commands implemented by a particular processor. - Machine Code - Binary - Usually represented by assembly codes Elements of an Instruction -Operation code (Op code) - Do this - Specifies the operation to be performed (e.g.. ADD, I/O). The operation is specified by a binary code, known as the operation code, or opcode. - Source Operand reference - To this - The operation may involve one or more source operands, that is, operands that are inputs for the operation. - Result Operand reference - Put the answer here - The operation may produce a result. - Next Instruction Reference - When you have done that, do this... - This tells the CPU where to fetch the next instruction after the execution of this instruction is complete. Where have all the Operands gone? - The next instruction to be fetched is located in main memory or, in the case of a virtual memory system, in either main memory or secondary memory (disk).

Windows 8 Faqs

...Windows 8 FAQs What are the System Requirements for Windows 8? According to Microsoft, the hardware requirements for Windows 8 will be the same as that for Windows 7.

Listed below are the minimum requirements for a 32-bit setup: * 1 GHz processor * 1 GM RAM * 16 GB hard disk space * DirectX 9 device * WDDM 1.0 driver Will Windows 8 Ensure Cross System Compatibility? Yes, Windows 8 would ensure cross system computability up to a great extent, if not fully. The operating system might not work on all devices, but it will surely run on a majority of them with ARM support. Therefore, chances are high for it to become the prime platform for all your household devices such as laptop, desktop PC, 3D-TV, mobile phone, and XBOX720. The major benefit would be portable data storage as well as access due to the cross-system compatibility and cloud services. Will Windows 8 run on XP machines? Surprisingly yes to get most of the tasks done, although it might be at the cost of a few functionalities that can go missing.

Introduction to Set

...Instruction Sets: Characteristics and Functions The essential elements of a computer instruction are the opcode, which specifies the operation to be performed; the source and destination operand references, which specify the input and output locations and for the operation; and a next instruction reference, which is usually implicit. (understood) Opcode specify operation in one of the following general categories: arithmetic and logic operations; movement of data between two registers, register and memory or two memory locations; I/O; and control. Operand references specify a register or memory location of operand data. The type of data may be addresses, numbers, characters and logical data. A common architectural feature in processor is the use of stack, which may or may not be visible to the programmer. Stacks are used to manage procedure calls and returns and may be provided as an alternative form of addressing memory. The basic stacks operation are PUSH, POP, and operations on the top one or two stack locations. Stacks typically are implemented to grow from higher addresses to lower addresses. The machine instructions set provides the functional requirements for the CPU: Implementing the CPU is a task that in large part involves implementing the machine instructions set.

Problem Set

...Complete the problem sets and show all steps in your work: • Ch. 17: Problem B1 • Ch. 18: Problems A10 & B2 • Ch. 20: Problem A2 • Ch. 21: Problem C2 Chapter 17 (p. 500) B1: A. The goal is for Bixton to remain comfortably in the “A” range. For this to work properly, the firm must avoid ratings on the low end of the scale. Fixed Charge Coverage = 3.40 – 4.30 Total Debt = 55 – 65 Long-Term Debt = 25 – 30 B. Other considerable factors before settling on the target range includes: net present value (NPV), foreign tax credits, and the price of stock. In addition, the firm has a larger-than-average research and development department. Meaning if Bixton could show control over the spending in this area (funds from operations), any rating above 45% and below 65% would increase the lenders’ willingness to loan. C. Again, the key specific issues Bixton must resolve are the R&D and foreign tax credits. The target ranges listed in this case are only appropriate as a debt shield. More importantly, lenders will monitor for long-term debt to determine if R&D spending increase, and foreign tax credits remain balanced. That means any increase or decrease outside of the “A” range (22 – 32) indicates the capital structure is losing leverage. Chapter 18 (p. 542) A10. DPS1 – DPS0 = ADJ[POR(EPS1) – DPS0] YR1 = 0.75 [0.25 X $8.00 - $1.00] + $1.00 = $1.75 YR2 = 0.75 [0.25 X $8.00 - $1.75] + $1.75 = $1.94 YR3 = 0.75 [0.25 X $8.00 - $1.94] + $1.94 =......
