Where Can I get the Initial Test ???

Post by chanakam2000 on May 14th 2010, 9:34 am

Before starting our course, you can go through a test that is meant to measure players’
strength up to 2300 rating. The test is extremely hard and very few students have been
successful in more than 50% of the examples.

I want to get this test and check my level.
But I did not see how can I get the test.
Can you please tell me Where is the test

Is it the Test-01 at the section Tests, Problems, Individual Analysis or is there a Test-00 ?

Is there any way to compare points with rating? I have points and I know what is maximum number of point, but do not understand what is the point of the test if I get only the points. I kind of expected to have some analysis at the end.Like for example, if you solved these and those problems that you are strong in understanding closed center but if you failed some problems then you are weak in calculations. Im not sure that understand point of the test.
Any thoughts?

I haven't seen such result list that you mentioned. I guess ICS is just doing a 'before' and 'after' thing. With other words, they hope that you score much higher on the test after you studied their course(s).

Yes, it seems like that. I was little bit confused by their statement that test is used to measure strength up to 2300 elo. Indeed, they do not mention that test will estimate your rating.
They do have strategy puzzles for separate purchase. I wonder how good that it and is it worth the money ($72).
