Chessimo is definitely a revolutionary chess training system. It reinforces your basic knowledge in Tactics, Endgames, Openings and Strategy at the same time as it teaches you new tricks.
It’s totally interactive: each exercise gives instructions, illustrates a concept and requires an answer from the user. If the answer isn’t the most accurate one, the software shows the correct move. If you wish to analyze other options you consider more precise just open the auxiliary chessboard and the “Crafty” engine will support your analyses.
This teaching technique has a priceless value, because it significantly increases learning and comprehension, since you are required to work on a problem, before getting the answers.
The software is also sequential. Even if some exercises seem extremely simple, they are very important to reinforce previously learned concepts.
At any time, you may open the auxiliary chessboard and find out why the program chose not to perform the move you considered best!
This repetition is the key to your success through Chessimo.
