You have no doubt heard the saying that practice makes perfect. Actually practice makes permanent. If you practice badly you will perform badly. It is practice in the pursuit of perfection that leads to better performance. Accurate practice is the essential ingredient in achieving success in any complex endeavor. My First Book of Checkmate Workbook offers the opportunity for accurate practice at the all-important task of finding checkmate. Beginning with the simplest checkmate patterns this book proceeds gradually and methodically through ever more complex puzzles until you are solving problems that can take four five or six moves to unfold. This is truly practice that will lead to perfection in the exciting field of checkmate.
