What should I do now to improve my skills?... What videos will help my Endgame?... Which Mentor Courses will make me a better strategist? At my level, should I be playing more - or studying more?...

... Sound familiar? Well, wonder no longer:

Study Plans bring uncertainty and aimlessness to an end, charting a clear path to chess improvement! Let's face it: There is a huge wealth of information & learning tools on Chess.com, and these plans will help you navigate through it, with two goals:

  • to reveal the very best material for your current skill level, and...
  • to unify that content so that diverse yet complementary activities reinforce each other for high-impact learning and fast improvement!

          I am sorry Chemwong but I can't think of an appropriate Fermat's Last Theorem joke to reply with.

          They have a marvelous study plan but margin was too small to contain.

          I think the advanced study plan is found in Articles. Silman and many others have lots for all levels. The looking is a bit hard so post when you find something good for you. It may not be good for the next person, but it may be just what they are looking for.

          @girish_shashank: Yikes. Your diagrammed analysis is good except for one huge, obvious blunder. 7. d6?? gives Black a draw after 7. ... Ke8!, 8. d7+ Kd8, 9. Kd6.  Correct instead is 7. Kd6 Ke8, 8. Kc7.

          • The Pawn's path must be cleared before it ever reaches the sixth rank.
          • The Pawn must not give check on the seventh rank (unless its path has already been completely protected).
