    I think you should choose chessmaster 11 if you go with the chessmaster solution. there may be nearly no difference but the Art of Learning training part added is very great.

    I love the Waitzkin videos.  Even if players on the low end struggle to understand his ideas, Josh's style of narration makes it fun to watch and learn.  I find as my chess gets stronger, I can appreciate his videos in a whole new way.

    Playing against computers is a terrible waste of your time.

    All you learn is either "death by a thousand cuts," or they make dumb moves and lose. Either way, very unsatisfying.

    Use engines for playing over, and analyzing, your regular games against other humans. Then lots of new ideas (and corrections) will jump out at you.  Those are the kinds of practical insights that will strengthen your play.
