Bookkeeping Testing
Under The Light
The purpose of this site is to provide accounting and bookkeeping practice skills tests and exams in order to aid anyone seeking a bookkeeping position or just wanting to test their accounting and bookkeeping knowledge. The site can also be used to help employers evaluate a prospective employee's accounting and bookkeeping knowledge and qualifications. Teachers can use the site as an extra activity where their students can test their basic bookkeeping and accounting knowledge.
For those that haven't been exposed to me (not having been a visitor to my free bookkeeping site (Bean Counter), my name is Dave Marshall and I promote bookkeeping and accounting education and skills testing.

Why Bookkeeping Testing ?
Bookkeeping Testing
See what you know by checking out my Skill Tests, Basic Bookkeeping Tests, Bookkeeping Tests by Topics, and Talking Quizzes with over 150 tests and over 3,000 bookkeeping and accounting practice tests and exam questions and answers providing approximately 50 hours of testing time to help you assess what you know about bookkeeping and accounting. The bookkeeping and accounting practice tests are for self evaluation purposes and no certificates of completion are offered.

How's my site different from other accounting and bookkeeping exam sites?
  • Many sites I've visited charge a fee or require membership in order to take their accounting tests-not me !
  • Many don't offer very many bookkeeping tests or questions to test your knowlege.
  • No, my accounting tests do not provide a certificate of completion (self evaluation); but, if I were an employer these certificates would carry little if any weight on me hiring you. I'd do my own testing.

Test your knowledge of basic financial statements, special journals, debits and credits, inventory, accounting rules (GAAP), and accounting terms with these  bookkeeping skills tests.
Think of this section as a buffet where a little bit of everthing regarding accounting and bookkeeping is "served". What's on the menu ?

Topics covered include double-entry and single entry bookkeeping systems, types of business organizations,  accounting equations, source documents, business transactions, types of accounts and the chart of accounts, debits and credits, inventory, payroll, cash management, special journals and ledgers, balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, and more.

You're on the Hot Seat !

Baldy’s Barber Shop bookkeeping practice set course was made to provide the accounting and bookkeeping student with an overview of how the manual concepts taught in an introductory accounting course can be applied to a manual and computerized accounting system. In addition, the practice set illustrates the benefits of using a computerized accounting and bookkeeping system.
I know that you're no dunce; but, an employer doesn't. In order to get hired for a bookkeeping or accounting position, as I previously mentioned, you have to prove to an employer that you have the necessary skills to perform the job. If you have a diploma or a degree and experience, that's a big step in the right direction. If not, having documentation proving you've completed bookkeeping courses and / or certified skills tests at least gets your "foot in the door".

If you're needing some credentials explore Certification Testing
You need the knowledge to be able to process and record business transactions accurately and promptly either manually or with accounting software. This includes invoicing customers, receiving cash, processing and paying supplier invoices, paying employees, preparing bank reconciliations, and providing owners, managers, or others with financial reports. Explore the requirements for obtaining a bookkeeping or accounting position and/or watch my Video about what a Bookkeeper's Duties are.
