An instructional workbook containing 434 carefully selected problems presented in worksheet format. Chess Tactics For Students has been extensively field tested with elementary, middle-school, and high-school students over a four-year period. A versatile design makes this book ideal for independent seat work and homework as well as for chess club and classroom instruction. The worksheet format enables self correction with minimal dependence on direct help from a chess teacher, coach, or parent.
This oversized book is clearly meant for use by those who teach chess. There are many tactical exercises within the pages, with diagrams large enough to be readily studied by a young, budding chess player. Tactical ideas are such a great part of games at club level that the study of these positions and themes should help a student win more games by knowing tactics better.
Good material that covers the basic tactics. I like that the material is organized in such a way that I can have multiple students in a class easily follow along.
