Alright after asking some people here is what i am going to do for studying chess. Please tell me if you think there is a better way to do it .
Alright so i will start with openings. First I will watch all the videos about openings in the video library. Then i will do all the chess mentor courses about openings. When i am done with openings i will do the same thing with middle games and do the same thing with end games (in that order). Then i will watch videos about strategies and do chess mentor courses. When I finish all of that I will watch videos about tactics and the chess mentor courses for it. When I finish all of that i will do 1-3 hours of tactic trainer daily. Please tell me what do you think of that :) Thanks.
A piece of biased-but-perhaps-useful information that I value:
The requirement for detailed knowledge of theory (plans / lines / resulting endgames / typical traps, etc.) on particular openings is inversely proportional to one's experience/strength: GMs need the most; novices need the least. So, I would counsel against spending many hours working on openings as one's first plan element. At the 1200 level and below, any reasonable moves that don't lose material are sufficient for good play. Indeed, the purpose of the opening at that level should only be to get a playable game. All these 2.Qh5 lines by low-rated players trying to win with a trap out of the opening are shortsighted, even if they work.
Again ... just my opinion.
@DrawMaster yea i know that 2.Qh5 is bad thats why they are not in the video library etc :D so you think Start with openings for a playable game ?:D (thats what i said xD )
Any other opinions ?:D
Would be great if i can have some more answers ASAP
2.Qh5 isn't bad. wth! you just need to make use of the move and protect your queen or be aware of a good time to sac it for material
