To print or just the screen?

Post by chesstiger on April 23rd 2009, 10:11 am

I am wondering if you guys print out all the material you get from ICS and make notes/annotations on these papers or that you just read it from the screen?

Personnally i need to print the material, i am lousy when it comes to read from the screen.

In fact i print it twice. One for putting it away so that i have a clean example of the course. Another one with which i work and may put some notes/annotations for myself.

I read it on the screen. I work as software engineer so i'm more than used to deal with pdf files.

I like to print it and make my own notes. Especially the theory portions. I just can't follow when I read it on the screen.

I have a tough time at reading it on the screen as well. There is something about having something in your had while you work through a posistion. It's like a book or an old vinal record that you use to hold and read while you listen to the music. iPod... did someone say dam iPod? Sorry another subject all together. Rolling Eyes

Browser, PDF, chessbase?

What does everyone prefer to use. The browser version, chessbase version or the pdf and review over the board? Or a bit of everything?

The browser version, I find that I go through the material faster with less retention. For me the pdf and over the board works the best... but it is extremely time consuming.

I'm definitely a print it out guy. I even bought a couple nice ring binders and loads or punched plastic pocket holders for me to divide it up by chapters!

I print the material out and record all of the data and solutions into specially created databases on Chessbase 10.

I also load up any annotated games from the Megadatabase 2009 and save them seperately with full annotations in another folder.

I've also created a folder for reportoires and am just working through Yasser Sarewein's Winning Chess Openings and creating my own opening book. I'll use Rueben Fines Ideas Behind the Chess Openings afterwards to study his sections on classical openings (apparently his modern openings are outdated, which matters not to me as I'm a classica 1.e4 e5 and 1.d4 d5 player.

I'm really getting into it and am starting to love studying as much as playing which is a big turn around for me when in the past I hated study altogether.

Print + Board

I think printout and play through on a "real" board is best.

If you have Adobe Pro (and maybe with Adobe Reader also) you can print out a "booklet" format of any PDF -- so you can fit four pages using front and back of a single sheet. I print and staple a few sections together as a booklet (they're not very long). So I have them for using with a board or with the screen or just reading when I'm waiting around.

I've bought a couple ring binders and paper pockets and have printed the whole course out and put them in the binders, each chapter, game, theory lesson etc seperated in its own paper pocket. I've even bought some colour divider pages so I have different colour tabs allowing me to divide each month.

It looks awesome but I've spent nearly as much time putting it all together as I have studying Rolling Eyes
