It seems a bewildering process learning all these openings, I have problems remembering the names let alone the moves, and even less the circumstances in which to apply them. I guess it'll take some time. What I've found good is practricing the opening lots until I'm comfortable with it , even if I lose a game with it, I can always analyse it afterwards. I've also used the tactics trainer, it's good. I'll think about becoming a full member and using the mentor.
What are your learning techniques?
