DGT Chess Trainer covers all the rules and essential combinations.
This software begins at the very beginning – explaining the board set-up and how the pieces move. It builds from there, step-by-step, in the tradition of the famous TASC Chess Learning System, with 45 lessons supplemented by over 1500 exercises. As you learn and work your way through the exercises, it will grade your results, and also give you hints and tips if requested. A great interactive learning program!
