General Ledger Knowledge Assessment


General Ledger Knowledge Assessment


The General Ledger Knowledge test seeks to determine the knowledge level of a candidate seeking employment in the field of accounting. The questions on this test range in difficulty from basic, which a candidate with as little as one year's experience should be able to answer, to questions which are more challenging and will probably only be answered correctly by those candidates with more experience or those who are seeking professional qualifications in accounting. The balance between basic, intermediate and advanced level questions provides an adequate reflection of a candidate's knowledge base. The test is designed to be relevant to candidates who have worked with either manual or computerized systems, as well as a combination of the two.

Tests for Bookkeeping - Professional, Financial Math and Payroll Clerk are also available.
