Tape Name: Essence Of Auditing, Know To Mystery Scale

"Talk about human memory - phooey. I mean, there’s no worry about this at all. The only reason a person cannot remember is because he is facing a computer that he expects to remember.

He never gets it through his skull that what you’re asking him to do is actually to know the answer. Because, you see, he doesn’t have to have the answer out of that computer at all. He doesn’t have to have the computer tell him a thing. It’s just a gimmick, a gadget.
