The Step-by-step method has been developed by Rob Brunia and Cor van Wijgerden to teach children how to play chess. It has been successfully adopted by many chess clubs and schools in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Slowly but steadily the method is gaining popularity throughout the world.
The whole course consists of six manuals, specifically for chess teachers or trainers (the first steps are also suitable for parents), and 23 workbooks (3/4 for each step) which can be used by the students themselves.
Trainers can download the answers of the latest edition of a given workbook. To get an indication of the level of a step solve 12 puzzles from a page from a workbook.
In the mix workbook are 61 pages with exercises, which means as many as 61x12=732-14 (drawings) = 718 puzzles.
The theme's are known from Step 2, Step 2 plus, Step 2 thinking ahead and the lower Steps. A workbook containing exercises with one ‘simple’ assignment: play the best move. Just like in a real game, you do not know whether you can win or whether you have to defend. First, look at what’s going on? Which targets can you exploit? What is the opponent threatening? Is it time to draw? In short, all kinds of stuff.
Two kinds of puzzles are different: on each page you will find a multiple choice question and a position with a line below the diagram. Only on the last 4 pages there is an indication of the theme: 4 pages with mate in two problems.
