Description of Chess Strategy for Beginners

This course is an interactive tutorial for those unexperienced players, both children and adults, who have already learnt the rules of chess and now wish to become players of intermediate strength. This course covers a wide range of opening, middlegame and endgame subjects. It starts off by teaching you how to checkmate the lone king and proceeds to more advanced topics, such as utilizing a material or positional advantage. This program includes 55 lessons with more than 1200 instructive examples and exercises. This course turns a beginner into an intermediate player!

What's new with you? Please tell everyone.

Sam Johnson 2018-10-15

The exercises don\'t explain *why* moves are made and dismisses other solutions. So, basically useless Edit: to the reply, you have to actually explain to to the user WHY moves are being made and what tactics are used. Just telling them literally provides no help at all. Remember, this is made for the beginner. There is no base to be built up on when you don\'t tell me what I should be lookig for, patterns to recognize, etc. Just google \"how to effectively teach\" or watch a Khan Academy lesson. Put effort into the teaching, this is just halfway finished junk

Super course for improving my chess. I\'ve played chess casually for 50 years, but finally am trying to become a club player. This course has really helped. I like that it has both readable theory and corresponding practice problems. At first I thought the practice problems had some errors, but after studying the moves that I thought were \"good,\" I realized that they were \"bad\" because I often failed to consider that my own king was in check. My only criticism is that I\'d like a bit more commentary on the master games that are used for examples after the text of the theory. Some have commentary, others just have the moves. It\'s really nice to be able to play against the chess engine from any point in the examples or the problems. I\'ve already bought three other courses and plan to work through many more.

Both enjoyable and educational. Not many lessons available to trial users but the demonstrations are excellent once configuring the controls for the simulator (learning the corresponding grid coordinates was also tricky. It is also difficult to interpret instructions when practicing, there does not seem to be clear distinction between strategies. I suggest short blurbs on the background of games & players referenced.

Very impressed I know the rules of chess but I don\'t really know how to play chess, so this app is perfect for me. Interface is great and the ability to learn and toy with the theory before reinforcing with problems is how I like to learn. The full version might seem expensive for an app, but in my opinion it\'s a steal for an accessible, mobile Chess course.

Worth buying full package. Ive played chess over the years but this helps fill in the blanks and establishes a solid foundation to build on.

Great way to pass some down time and up you chess game.

If you want to look deeper into chess and develope your skills then you should use an app like this one! So far I\'ve downloaded 9 of chesskings apps. It\'s a lot of amazing content that is almost addicting. They have theory that you can read that will expand your knowledge of the game, and they have puzzles to put that theory to test, then promote visualization by proving you with different responses to best move. Great job chessking

This is a great app to begin understanding chess strategy.
Manuel Seelaus 2017-09-03

Great app to practice (addictive). But sometimes there are multiple ways to \"mate in 2\" but you have to guess the way the app intended which is a bit frustrating.
A Google user 2017-02-06

After years of pointless messing about I am now learning.
