Accountants - new, experienced, aspiring
Does anyone have any recommendations for quality CPE and accounting/tax research? I'm having a hard time finding courses that offer the level of detail that I need; many seem to just restate what is in my college textbooks.
I am looking for some really in-depth courses on the following topics: AMT, fixed assets/deoreciation (book and tax), dividends received deduction, bankruptcy (corporate), franchise tax, Texas franchise tax, FAS 109, purchase accounting, FIN 48, stock based comp, revenue recognition (particularly software), and IFRS.
CPE: I prefer to get it on an audio CD because I will remember it better if I hear it. But an online course where I could print the material would work.
For research I would love a searchable database that I could afford (I am only staff level and cannot spend thousands on a research library/database). I have discovered cheap 2007/2008 CCH paperback guides on ebay and amazon but any suggestions would be appreciated.
