Welcome to Volume II, the second level, of our Comprehensive Chess Course. It is aimed at those students who have completed and mastered the lessons in Volume I. In addition to numerous corrections and alterations to this, the third edition, a new chapter has been added, "Moving On to Expert and Master.
Although Volume II is designed for players who are familiar with the main rules of play set forth in Volume I, teachers are advised to review these rules during the first lesson of the intermediate course. There are always a few players who do not know them thoroughly. Also during the first lesson, students will be introduced to the triple repetition and 50-move rules, which means that they will now know all the rules of chess play.
