Comprehensive Chess Course, Vol. 1:
Learn Chess in 12 Lessons
By Roman Pelts and GM Lev Alburt
This highly-praised volume is ideal for group instruction or personal study. Set up in workbook fashion, Volume I will have you or your students playing in 12 clearly explained lessons, while laying down a solid foundaton for future growth.
Based on the famous, formerly secret "From Beginner to Master" course of study developed over decades in the old Soviet Union, the Comprehensive Chess Course provides students with all the essential information they need to learn chess and then to improve their skills steadily and efficiently.
The contents of this book, and its companion Volume 2 (sold separately), include every diagram and every problem of the old Soviet system, and leave little to chance. The course is filled with what has worked well in practice in Russian classrooms and teaches all the rules of chess, all the fundamentals, and how to visualize the board and pieces--the prerequisite for success in chess.
Chess diagrams throughout.
