"AccountingHub PRO Plus was a great asset in my job hunt. I was tested on essential accounting skills and concepts and did great. After trying to review textbook material in preparation for my first accountant job, I found myself struggling with the structure and presentation of the material.
I decided to use AccountingHub and attain 3 certificates. The material is very accessible and well structured and the tests and flashcards are great practice to reinforce your knowledge. In 4 days of constant study I improved my confidence and earned the 3 certificates. PRO Plus is worth it and I highly recommend it."
