Your Study Plan
The best way to get better is to take a live course
from a master coach.
Maybe having a live coach is nothing for you,
this page shows all you need to get started with your own
way of studying !
If you like to
improve your playing strength with this kind of training I
suggest online training with Chess Teacher GM Viktor Gavrikov

IM Josh Waitzkin goes through his games with you and you are tested
in a lot of quizzes to keep track of your learning progress. You'll
be busy for a long time to work through all lectures. Once you are
finished I bet you have a rating of at least 1750. In the teaching
area Chessmaster is a lot better than Fritz !
the more advanced chess student is the DVD
Fritz 11 the perfect tool. How often have you attended personal
Grandmaster lectures or training sessions? With its Chess Media
System Fritz 11 brings the world’s greatest chess players into your
living room, in full high resolution video and sound and a synchronised
graphic chessboard. Listen to Garry Kasparov, Vladimir Kramnik,
Viktor Korchnoi, Alexei Shirov or (former world champion) Rustam
Kasimdzhanov while they explain important openings and ideas that
lead to success. A host of famous chess teachers provide instruction
in more mundane(!) subjects, like opening traps, middlegame strategy,
or endgame skills. Video running time: more than 13 hours!
