Tactics for Students

Went over approximately 35 puzzles with a 98% success rate. Seems material is slightly under my level. Will continue to use the book for a review of basic tactics before moving on to something more difficult.


Brought my rating back to 1700, working on quality of results not quantity of puzzles. Averaging about 5-8 puzzles per day.

Guide to Good Chess

Started reading on page 26. Beginners should start on page 1. Most of it is fundamental stuff, but a lot of his content I have never seen in other books, and it is definetly worthwhile going over. I am going to post selected passages on my Purdy Chess Blog, so feel free to go there for some Purdy nuggets of chess wisdom.
