What will you learn from the course?

In this course, GM Igor Smirnov answers some of the questions received from RCA students

Many players such as myself are club level players who would simply like to reach expert strength rating (2200) or even just rating (2000). Most club level players struggle with creating a schedule for an effective study plan, what to study & how to study.
Number of hours per day spent on each aspect of chess?
How and what to train with only 1-2 free hours per week?
How to make steady progress? How to get the best out of chess books, chess software, playing online and puzzles?
A course about how someone should analyze his game is very useful.
How to work as best when alone? Many chess players cannot offer themselves the aid of a coach for geographical or financial reasons.
