Introducing... Study Plans!

News

This is a fun & instructive new project we're kicking off this week - by publishing a new plan every day! 

What's a "Study Plan" you say? Well, check out the announcement in the official blog; then have a gander at the first Plan!

Lots more to come!  :)

Yeppers! Really excited about this: We have been working really hard on these things, and we think our "recommended systems for improvement" are going to be of HUGE help to people... Let us know your thoughts!

Wait - if I am already taking lessons with a GM, will this be a replacement or a supplement?

DanielRensch

Can you really ever "replace" private lessons with a GM??? More of a supplement in your case, but for many, it will be the best "guidance" they have ever had!!!

 Common sense even  tells ME that!  You would think a NM would realize it.

The beginner study plans are awesome. Thank you.

DanielRensch

However -- responding further to my buddy DeepGreene's last comment -- We will eventually have study plans specific to certain tasks: Like beginner players wanting to master the Dragon Sicilian, etc... For now, our focus remains on expanding our "base repertoire" which is the Intermediate, Advanced, and Master Path Study Plans!

Look for this feature to become a critical part of how members navigate and use the features of Chess.com!!!

Thanks everyone!!!
