          just started this study plan, i wish I had done long before, it is far worth than playing on live blitz or rapid chess. Study plan, video lessons, chess mentor, tactics..... etc are great ways to improve a chessplayer and enjoy it at the same time. Chess.com people u r great guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          I know everyone is crossing their fingers and looking here often, hoping that one day, there will be advanced study plans. But the intermediate section has stuff I dont know yet, and I am 1900! 

          Go through the intermediate section guys- it will be worth it!

          I'd be happy too to see (finally) the advanced study plans, not that I am not happy with chess mentor, the tactics trainer and video lessons, but I believe this "advanced study plan" could still add some valuable information. For instance, the mentor and tactics trainer focus on one specific subject per time, whereas the study plans give a general view on what a player should focus on to improve overall. I am sure Danny would do a great job on it, call Trent in to help and the lecture will be stunningly entertaining! (just a humble suggestion) :D

          Something like updating the study plan to include an advanced section is what would make a player like me keep paying for premium membership. I pay to get help improving my chess.

          And then hopefully add on even a master section fairly later on.

          Poor study plan is better than no study plan at all. Did Tartarruscrawler said that?

          Any idea as to when the advanced Study plan is coming out?

          The advanced study plan should not buried inside tartarus. While we can make progress at our own device, this does not benefit the wide community. Please at least give partial plans so our strong urge can be quelled.

          Just so everyone knows, nobody is listening to us. I sent an email to chess.com months ago informing them how important advanced study plans are to many of us. While they acknowledged my plea, nothing has been done. Personally, I think they just don't have anyone to do it that is qualified. Heck, I could probably do it myself! Unfortunately, that wouldn't help me get better!Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
