Chess books have tried to approximate a method of teaching by asking the reader questions at the end of each chapter and printing the answers on a later page, but this does not sufficiently elucidate the point missed by the student who has failed to find the correct reply. Besides, test questions are often skipped by readers eager to go on to the secceding lesson. The result is that many of them finish a textbook without getting much benefit from it.

Recemt research into automatic teaching has led to an entirely new technique of self-instruction which overcomes these disadvantages. Programed instruction has proven so successful that it has been adopted in a series of books called Tutor Texts, which deal with a variety of subjects formerly considered appropriate only for study with expert teachers.

The new technuque discusses the subject matter in a way resembling conseversations between a tutor and his pupil. After a point has been explained, the reader's understanding of it is tested by a pertiment question. Several answers are suggested, and he is asked to pick the one he thinks is right. If his selection is incorrect, the page discussing his reply proceeds to clarify the point at issue and asks him to make a different choice. Only the page dealing with the proper answer tells him where to continue reading. In other words he cannot skip any questions. He must find the correct replies before he can finish the course.

This tutor is similar to programed instruction and self-instruction training by asking questions that require you to give the correct reply before going on to the next problem.

To get the maximum benefit out of these lessons YOU MUST carefully review each section and the related sections, which have been carefully prepared to give advanced concepts in the basic elements of chess tactics and strategy with examples covering each topic. Doing so will create a marked improvement in anyone's game.You may be surprised what you find there.
