One of the major ways of studying chess in our Russian “chess school” in the nineties was analyzing your own games. That got me into believing that this is the best way to improve your game. I started doing it without computer, on a piece of paper, but obviously over time tried to use databases as much as possible for maintaining and updating a collection of my games. I also helped several students of mine to learn how to analyze their games in effective ways, so here are a few suggestions that you might find useful:
#1 Note : Source - Roman
#2 Recommended : Chess Strategies
One thing to add, some players can't think when the engine is running, so would it be better to analyze on your OWN, first, then give it to the engine, firstly to analyze the game, than to correct your analysis? I think this helps in two ways, so you can see the way you think more clearly.
