 CT-ART 6.0 - Is it worth it?
Hello everyone!

I need some advice:

I am an intermediate player who is hungry to improve quickly.

A friend of mine -who also acts as my chess coach- advised me to focus on tactics for now and he suggested that I should buy the CT-ART 6.0 (he promised I will never need to buy another tactics software/book/DVD ever again!).

He said that this is the newest version of what he considers the best tactics software out there. He also showed me a link with the lowest price on the internet:
http://shop.chessdom.com/products/ct-ar ... count-pack

Do you guys think this is an investment worth making?

He also told me there are more than 10,000 puzzles of increasing difficulty in CT-ART 6.0.

Is this true?!?

Thanks in advance!

The prize isn't too high for that. However, you could also use free stuff from the internet.
If you prefer paper or .pdf you can use:
http://www.dejascacchi.altervista.org/exercises.htm
They have ~6500 puzzles, 100 in each .pdf

Or in .pgn and .cbv
https://sites.google.com/site/gschoenbuchner/schachtaktik
"only" 1400 puzzles up to now. Of course to read those you need a database program like Scid or ScidvsPC or Fritz or whatever.
There used to be a 3500 puzzles database available that I cannot find now.

Or download https://www-lucaschess.rhcloud.com/ which has also some training features, puzzles and so on included.
