Two resources require closer tracking. The Tactic Trainer iPad app does not track the number of problems attempted nor those solved, but offers only a running graph of the rise and fall of a user's rating. This morning I kept count as I solved five problems. The number of problems solved month to month with this resource may be approximated. As the resolution calls for a monthly minimum, I plan to under-report progress on the spreadsheet.
In October and November, I went through the first several dozen problems in the Anthology of Chess Combinations. Today I am reviewing some of these problems in order to recover the memory of where I stopped. That number will be entered into the blank space in column B. It is somewhere beyond number 32.
Schlechter -- Wolf 1894 (number 26) stymied me this morning as I found all the correct moves, but played them in the wrong sequence. It is a good combination for developing calculation skills.
White to move
My resolution requires that I solve the problem correctly. As I work through those in the Anthology, I miss many problems (or at least make several errors en route to the correct one). However, by working through again last week's or last month's problems, I do solve them correctly eventually. In my spreadsheet, I will track the number gone through, so that number will be inflated relative to my resolution.
