In the past few years, the FASB has released several significant accounting standards which have brought about sometimes sweeping changes to U.S. GAAP. Many of these new standards have required significant resources and sometimes lengthy implementation times. This course focuses on the key requirements from what is commonly referred to as the “Big 3”. This includes the new standards related to revenue recognition, leases, and credit losses on financial instruments. Even though some of the Accounting Standards Updates (ASUs) which drove these changes have been out for years, many entities have still yet to adopt all the requirements.

Overall it was well written. I would like to see more examples. This is very dry and abstract stuff to someone who does not practice in this area. The rail car and container ship examples were fantastic as examples.

Overall it was a great course. I regretfully found that you can take the exam in Explorer but you cannot submit so I had to take it twice, the second time in Chrome.
