In the chapter on Solutions, the authors explain the defects or virtues of all the alternatives proposed, and in addition to exhaustively analyzing the model, expose examples and complementary items with a strategic procedure similar to the Model Match for each Exercise. It is not only a matter of measuring their knowledge, but also of learning and assimilating ideas to the same extent.
This work is novel within the scope of Problems, trying to bet on a good selection of exercises and for offering the reader a complete information with very varied and rich positions.
The Exercises are classified according to Openings and level of difficulty, which is gradually increasing. The authors also classify the exercises according to Strategic Themes.
