Digit span is a great working memory test, one that I'm pretty abysmal at, especially the version where you have numbers and letters and have to recite back the answer with letters/numbers in reverse alphabetical/chronological order. If you have trouble manipulating and remembering information in short-term memory and/or have difficulty understanding multiple instructions at one time, it's likely you have executive functioning/working memory deficits.
