About the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) test

Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is an event-driven programming language built into Microsoft Office applications. If you work with data in Microsoft Office, an expert VBA programmer can help you manage your data exactly the way you need it.

A hallmark of a good VBA practitioner is being able to create your own tools and functions to satisfy various requirements and business needs. This Visual Basic for Applications test uses real-world scenarios to gauge practical and applied VBA skills.

This VBA test focuses on core VBA skills, including using intermediate coding, applying visual UserForms, working with data from varying sources, and using VBA with Microsoft Excel, one of the most popular applications of VBA.

VBA is useful for a variety of business sectors, and developing the right tools may save your company hundreds of hours, as VBA enables repetitive tasks to be replaced with scripts, forms, functions, and procedures.

VBA can help you save time and money by implementing efficient coding, managing data inside Excel sheets, connecting with SQL databases, and reading HTML and visual creations. This VBA skills test will evaluate the important skills a candidate needs to be a versatile intermediate developer.

Candidates who perform well on this VBA skills test have a strong grasp of VBA and practical experience using its programming resources and framework.

Review from G2

VP of engineering, mid-market (51-1000 FTE)

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
