The number of problems is so big that it requires at least one year to finish if we move super-fast. At our normal speed as I planned, we will take about 2 years. We are still not discussing everything. But the long term also matches the persistence required for chess progress.
Because it's only one book, it's easy for us to track progress and to focus our discussion. We are not doing interactive lessons, so focus is extremely important.
To compensate the lack of structure, I will mention about Steps concepts when we discuss the problems in 5334. I am publishing a sample schedule every week. If you are already ahead of the schedule, you can continue at your place and your pace, following my 2-year schedule. You can ask any question in 5334 at any time. Please include Page # and Problem #. I will try my best to answer in the weekly video. All videos will be kept at the course host:
