There are several tests, most of which can be found online to test yourself for ADD. In order to achieve a reliable result, it's important to evaluate yourself honestly and objectively, which can be difficult for some people. Psychiatrists and certain therapists are also trained to recognize symptoms and evaluate ADHD. I'm posting some links to tests online in the link box. The book "driven to distraction" is also an excellent resource.
