I find that I don't really know how to prioritize my time, when I study chess. I don't know how much time to spend on the different topics to improve my game.
I've played chess for a couple of months. With the exception of one month, when I studied for exams, I've played 1-2 hours a day. I think I need training in all topics.
Is there an experienced player (around rating 2000), who could recommend a layout for a weekly study plan based on 1-2 hours of study per day? I imagine something like "Monday: Openings, e4, 1 hour. Play blitz 30 minutes. Train tactics 30 minutes. Tuesday: ...", and so on. Maybe one weekday off.
If such a study plan requires a book or two, then I'm prepared to buy whatever is needed.
