The aim of this study of this essay can be summarized in three objectives, first providing new flexible tests based on sampling entropy for testing the exponential and uniform distribution, second a new test for symmetric based on metric entropy measure using m space was proposed, finally Monte Carlo simulations studies for comparisons of all entropy’s tests under the study were performed. Actual it is shown that the performance of the proposed parametric goodness of fit tests is well in most cases comparing with nonparametric tests, further the new symmetric test produces in general exceptionally strong performance with respect to other parametric tests.
