Does anyone have suggestions or a system for using the tools on chess.com to improve?
Can you specify the tools you ar referring to?
This would help adding suggestions.
Thanks for clarifying paul211. I am referring to the training tools such as chess mentor, tactics trainer, computer workout etc.
depends on which facet of the game you feel uncomfortable with - endings? watch rensch's videos and other videos - computer trainer - chess mentor
and tactics trainer all train different features and enhance your skills differently.
melding the various tools into a composite of a human capable of drawing up the resources needed to win games is individual - and subjectively dependent on your innate abilities as well as your learning. combine that with the amount of daily time you have to spare - and you add stress - what to learn, in a specific amount of time - for a particular event coming in the future ??
a lot is not specified by you, so a more coherent answer is difficult to fashion.
as a chess coach, i can tell you this: if you want your rating to rise for several years - not flashy but steady and your game understanding to rise - study endings daily for the same amount of time you study all other facets of the game.
There have been a number, but they all seem to eventually close their accounts or get banned.
Lol, Grobe, you beat me to it.
@OP: just browse these forums and you'll find tools aplenty :)
