Micro Drills Day 25

Tonight I'll be going over to my friend's house to play on his nice marble set but I'll be sure to squeeze in my drills when I get home.

After reading this article I've decided to modify my program a little. I will be adding in a pre-7Circles Circle(haven't decided what to call it yet) where I will read Seirawan's Winning Chess Tactics book to give me a base on tactics before starting the circles. Next for circle one I am going to repeat each level until I score higher than a 90% on that level before moving on to the next. I am also going to limit my time for problems on circle one to one hour a day instead of a set number of problems each day. The remaining time will be spent on the other areas that I am studying (mainly openings, middle game, endings, and grandmaster games). By the time I get to circle two I am hoping that this will give me a better foundation to work with in the remaining 6 circles and speed up the time it takes to do them.

I am thinking that this will add on another two to three months to my program but I feel that in the long run it will work out better for my style of learning.
