About the test

The Financial Analyst and MS Excel test evaluates a candidate’s ability to use financial statements and reports to assess the viability, stability, and profitability of a business or project, as well as candidates’ ability to use Excel spreadsheets to analyze financial data.

It’s an ideal assessment for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of financial analysis roles, including financial analyst, financial manager, investment analyst, and equity analyst. A good candidate for a financial analyst job will be able to display competency with understanding the formation and implications of financial statements, calculating and interpreting relevant financial indicator ratios, and using MS Excel spreadsheets to analyze data. This Financial Analyst test can be used to screen a large group of candidates in order to select the best to bring in for an interview.

This test requires candidates to perform assignments within spreadsheet software as well as answer multiple-choice and calculation questions related to the core principles of financial analysis. Candidates can use either their personal copy of Microsoft Excel or the free web version of MS Excel to complete the test.
