What is this course about?
This is a complete guide to understanding and playing the game of chess; from the correct way to set up the board through to tactical ideas and the various ways to win the game.
How is the course delivered?
After the introduction video there are eight instruction videos followed by a course review video. These are in the form of slide presentations with 'voice-over' coaching. Each of the instruction videos is accompanied by a self-test question paper, an answer sheet and a key points summary sheet so that you can check your understanding along the way and have a 'hard copy' of the main learning points.
How long will the course take to complete?
The course is presented in 'bite-sized' pieces, each video lasting between five and ten minutes. The total video time is 70 minutes but you'll also be completing self-test question papers each containing ten questions, you'll be checking your answers against the provided answer sheets and reading the key points summary sheets. If you covered all of that in the one sitting it would take around two and a half hours.
