When will this end ?
So what exactly have I been doing since my first post in February 2005?
I have done
* entire 7 circles on simpler material such as Bains Chess Tactics for Students (recommended)
*level 10-20 of Ct-Art ( I think I did 14 circles on Level 20 arrgh).
*completed the entire CT-Art straight through once (exhausting)
*Flashcards drills from simple problems of Blokhs earlier book
*done extensive study of the Kings Gambit, Traxler CounterAttack, and to the lesser extent Two Knights and the Marshall Attack
*played far too many 20+6 games on playchess.com
*bought far too many chessbooks
*actually read some of them
*studied and improved a little on basic endgames
*studied some classic games
Much like a marathoner, I am currently building my base before running the marathon . 7 circles of Ct-Art is more of an Ultra-marathon to me ! I am doing circles on Chess Tactics for Beginners on the computer (uncertain if I will do 7 circle on this) and in some non computer time doing circles of the Flashcards and the book "How to Beat Your Dad at Chess" (recommended).
