Difference between Acceptance Testing and Sandwich Testing

1. Acceptance Testing :
Acceptance Testing is done after the system testing. It is done to check whether the software meets the customer requirements or not. It is used by testers, stakeholders as well as clients. It includes only a Functional Testing and it consist of two testing Alpha Testing and Beta Testing.

2. Sandwich Testing :
Sandwich Testing is also called as the hybrid integration testing. It comprise the bottom-up approach testing and top-down approach testing, therefore it uses the advantage of both bottom up approach and top down approach. It also can not be used for those systems which have a lot of interdependence between different modules and it allows parallel testing.
