Welcome to my blog!

It has been a busy year for me. My award winning best-seller Chess Exam and Training Guide (ISBN 0975476122) continues to sell well and is now in its second major printing. Recall that in 2005 it won the Cramer award from the Chess Journalists of America for the best chess book. There have been translations done by major publishing houses in France and Russia.

Also, last Fall, Kasparov Chess Foundation released teacher's manual Teaching Chess Step-by-Step (3 volume set) of which I am one of the three co-authors.
Finally, later this month (May 2007), I am expecting to release the first edition of my new book Chess Exam and Training Guide: Tactics. (208pp, $19.95) Advanced edition (January 2007) was distributed among my students, friends and registered readers of the first Chess Exam. The responses I got were very positive. A few minor things were corrected.

I’d love to hear your comments, suggestions and questions you may have Chess Exam #2regarding my coaching methods and my books. Visit my websites at and where you can find out more and also contact me directly.

Good luck!
