Alternative Program

Here is my current idea for an alternative program. I like the idea of splitting up time spent on a problem into two sections:
  1. Understanding all relevant aspects of a problem to the best of your ability. Even if you start wrong, or even worse totally guess, you ideally want to end up with all of the right ideas given the original position. At this stage, repeating a problem within 3 days is a bit counterproductive.
  2. Memorization of a problem. Note: I really don't like the idea of getting into a memorizing circle with alot of problems you don't fully understand, but there does seem to be some evidence that it is better than not doing anything on a problem.
MDLM's 7 circles/1000 problems is a way to get this done. There probably are other equally valid ways as well.

I am aiming at 3 repetitions of TCT's step 1 and 2. Step 3 will be the testing ground for an alternative approach mentioned above.

With my recent drop *ahem* I think step 4 and 5 of TCT deserve the old 7 circles treatment. This is going to put my 7 circle total up to 1368 problems. I wonder if that will be enough. I suppose if I need more tactics work after that, there always is more software (oh no!), and by then I'll have a firm foundation on how to best use it.


TCT Circle
Result step 1: Average score 97 %
Result step 2: Average score 93 %
Result step 3: Average score 93 %
Result step 4: Average score 81 %

STILL in circle 2 of problems 204-218

Thanks for the links. Since I noticed you are a systembuilder I assume you have tried to categorize combinations in a systematic way. Is this true and how far did you come?
Interesting question. I'll make a post on that soon.
