Lesson 17: The Advanced Course - Part 5

Basic Strategy Variations: Test Yourself

By putting my classes up on the internet, I know I'm reaching a much larger audience than I ever had while teaching classes in person, but I do miss the ability to see how you all are doing in learning the material. In my 'in-person' classes, I always tested my students to gauge their progress and thus determine how effective my teaching methods are. We can't do that here, but I want you to test yourself with the methods I'm going to show you, if for no reason other than the fact that it will build your confidence when you see how much you really know. Much like we did when learning proper basic strategy, you should first complete one copy of the test directly from the material I taught in order to give yourself an answer sheet to use when correcting subsequent tests.

This test just asks you to 'fill in the blanks' with the correct index number from -2 to +10. Print as many copies of this as you'd like.
