I got some more new books, quite a few. I began going through Yermolinsky’s book, but I am going to through the Chess Exam book first. I left this comment on Blunderprone’s blog, since he is also going through it:
I am starting on this book just now. I feel that my biggest challenge while going through this book will be “Evaluation”. My biggest weakness tends to be in evaluating positions – i.e., should I defend, attack or whatnot. This is one of those things which throws my game/results off-kilter, and it’s also a big time-killer at the board.
It will probably take two months to finish this book. I am taking more for the lessons than the exam, but both are quite useful.
