Finished unit 20

Finished unit 20 of tactics module 1 and started on 21. Reps (as unit 15 to 20 mostly were) seem to be over, as 21 is making me face new challenges again. I'm not sure what to think about my back ache... It still bothers me, but it seems to be going slightly better.

Well, let's just hope that my devotion will bring about lot's of positive results chesswise. But the most impressive devotion to studying chess was that of Bobby Fischer... If i could only be half as devoted. But i cannot really compare ofcourse... He started studying as a kid with with much more time on his hands. But to start learning Russian in order to be able to read Russian chess books and magazines, to try and beat them at their own game (which he did)... Now that is what i call impressive!!

A good book to use in conjunction with PCT is "Art of Checkmate" by renaud and kahn.

Anyway, if you don't turn out like Bobby fischer i think you are all the better for it!

good job, keep it up.. cya

hey, hope your back feels better soon. I've already finished the first 5 units! I enjoy it, but I'm sure I will be slowing down soon. :)

Thank you for your concern. But i'm a little bit afraid about my back though... I've had the same ache's before. And even though they were serious at the times they occured, they went away pretty quickly. This time though, it isn't really going away. Plus my knee has a very bad burn to it when i turn it into a particular direction. I think during my lifetime i f'd up some parts of my body pretty bad. And i'm not at all happy with that.

So, 5 units allready!
Keep up the good work ;)

i'm wondering, is there any way to save your progress in the middle of a unit? i have to do it all or not at all, there is no pausing half way. just wondering

It should be automaticly saving your progress... With me it does. You should be able to stop halfway (or a quarter or whatever) and have your progress saved. Doesn't it do that with you? If you do only one exercise though, say at the beginning of a unit, and you exit, you will have to do it again next time. But if you do a couple you should be able to exit just fine. Let me know if it works.
