"I highly recommend Accountests to any firm looking to improve its hiring process. This resource has been an invaluable asset to our practice for discernment in hiring candidates. The tests provided by the website give us information that we cannot gather from an interview or a resume alone. It is a missing piece of the hiring process that has saved our firm thousands of dollars by preventing a mis-hire."
