Debits and Credits Accounting Test
Debits and Credits (Double Entry) Accounting Test
The Debits and Credits Accounting Test is a fast and simple way to determine if your candidate has an intuitive grasp of the basics of double entry accounting (i.e. debits and credits).
The test is ideal for interns or college graduate positions or for higher level positions where you want to check the candidate's basic accounting skills. It is also an ideal follow on from the Bookkeeper or Non-CPA Accounting Tests, especially if candidates have scored poorly in those tests.
For a more generalist test covering double entry and business acumen see the Intern and College Graduate Test.
The test covers four areas:
- Simple Journals – identifying journals required from easy transactions
- More Complex Journals - identifying journals required from harder transactions
- Financial Statements – identifying where accounts will be found in financial statements
- Transactions – from a journal entry identifying the transaction that has occurred
