If you plan to do any chess training, you must be aware of
your strengths and weaknesses. Training can take time and
effort and it is best to focus where improvements will make
the biggest impact. We offer this FREE TEST
to help you gauge your abilities to better direct your chess
training. Chess Aid has prepared this test, to let you check
your chess skills (chess strategy, chess tactic, endgames)
and estimate your chess rating based upon your test score.
Whenever you decide to improve your chess knowledge by purchasing
the Chess Course,
your test score will be very useful for us, because we will
prepare the content of the chess course to match exactly your
current chess level.
During the test you are to use English version of the short
algebraic notation. The short algebraic notation is written
by indicating the piece moving and the square it goes to,
except in the case of a pawn move, where you only write the
square it goes to. The pieces are indicated by only one capital
K for King
Q for Queen
R for Rook
B for Bishop
N for Knight
(Pawns don't need any letter)
Examples of moves: Bf7, Nd4, Qg5, Ke2, Ra1, c4
Important - pieces are designated by CAPITAL
letters (K,Q,R,B,N) while squares are designated by lower
case letters and numbers (h3,d6,c4,g5). Don't put "x",
