Thank you ElPractico.I appreciate your comment.
Since then, I have invested in the Dutch method; they call it “stappen methode” or the step-by-step method. The great thing about it is they have gathered al the booklets into three CD ROM, available from New In Chess. I bought step 2, as I think I know the rules of the game. The method is very gradual and easy to understand. It is geared to beginners. It concentrates especially in teaching to recognize patterns of tactics. I am very enthusiastic about it since it will fill gaps in my chess knowledge. The knowledge learned is readily applicable, because you automatically look for, say a pin; and you know what to look for having done the training exercises – which are easier than C*T Art, but more efficient.
Best regards;

CT Art is a good strong "tactics" study. "Chess Mentor" is a comprehensive study of chess in general; positional, tactics, middle game, endgame and most importantly a serious look of "imbalances" which is a key guide for determining your next move.

It's a study of finding the best move from Master games. It's a great learning tool! The moves and ideas are explained very well. You gain and lose rating points as you go through the excercises.

Dear avid chess learners,
I wanted your opinion. I go to chess com where they have some good advice. I noticed an advert for ch*ss m*entor; their subscription is pretty steep £64/year. I bought ct Art (current price at amazon £29,95).
I wanted to know if any of you had used chess m*ntor. How does it compare with ct Art.
