To check your chain for wear you need a chain checker such as the Park CC-2 or CC-3 click the links to see vids on how they work. The image below is an extreme case but it illustrates a few important points.

It's totally worn out and definitely prone to skipping under power. Then look at the bigger cogs outside of the chain, see how they have a nice round profile to the hollow where the chain goes and square tops to the teeth. Much better, although they could still be prone to skippage because the chain must be super stretched to have worn out the smaller cogs as badly as it did.
In order for a cassette to be worn out this unevenly the rider is obviously riding in the same gear s all the time and is pretty atypical.

Sometimes just a chain won't do and a new cassette is needed as well, you won't know until you try it. If it's questionable, just do the cassette too, you won't regret it So, let's assume you've measured your chain and it's just worn enough to replace without needing a new cassette.
