Test Evaluate and Improve Your Chess - 3RD EDITION

A Knowledge Based Approach

Product Code: B0072OB

img

Dr. Danny Kopec is not your typical chess author. As a tenured professor with one of the New York's most prestigious universities and a PhD in Computer Science, Dr. Kopec has spent many years developing and refining his educational techniques - both on and off the 64-square battlefield.

When Dr. Kopec accepts a new student, the first thing he does is perform a complete assessment on that student and their playing ability. Through a revolutionary testing system, Dr. Kopec is able to quantify their overall chess strength, specific deficiencies and definite abilities, allowing him to pinpoint which aspects need the most work. This book, developed with the US Chess Federation, represents the sum of Dr. Kopec's knowledge and efforts to help chess players understand and acquire the knowledge necessary to achieve chess mastery.

If you're looking to improve your chess, but are unsure which areas are in greatest need of improvement, this book is for you!

Once completed, you will have a total understanding of your chess skill and will be able to focus on those areas most in need of improvement.
