Audit Senior / Audit Manager Test
Test for Hiring External AuditorsThe Audit Senior / Audit Manager Test is designed to assess the knowledge and understanding of candidates for roles that focus on auditing external financial statements in public practice accounting firms.
The test covers areas:
- Accounting Understanding
- Financial Reporting Standards (appropriate for both IFRS and US GAAP)
- Analytical Review / Interpretation
- Auditing Standards
As the test is designed to assess skills relevant under IFRS or US GAAP, it will be relevant in most countries. However, the test is unlikely to be appropriate for internal auditors, unless their work revolves around financial reporting standards.
- Time to complete: 30 minutes
- Number of questions: 40
- Question Levels: Basic = 13, Intermediate = 14, Advanced = 13
- Questions per topic: Financial Reporting = 15, Audit Review = 10, Accounting = 5, Audit Standards = 10
- Each test purchased allows you to test one candidate
