This page is considered superfluous or obsolete and will be removed. If you object against removing this page, kindly remove the removal template from the page content, give an explanatory note in the summary and possibly improve the page or linkage to it, so that its purpose becomes clearer.
Reason: This page is better covered elsewhere in SL. It contains a short and abandoned list of teachers, and a suggestion to study. I don't feel that it needs to be moved and merged. It can be removed harmlessly.

This page is in need of attention.
Reason: Move and merge somewhere. Non continued guide to study material and an arbitrary sample of three teachers.

There is plenty of good Go material out there (including Sensei's Library ;-), so how do you determine what books, websites, professional games, ... are suited for your level and what kind of study habits are most effective?

1. Find yourself a teacher

at Go teachers

2. Self-study

If you're looking for a guide to self-study, you want to read the Beginner Study Section.

Here are some links to individual homepages; these links will point you to the advice of some very strong players.:

David Mechner

David is an American 6 dan who studied for a year and a half as an insei (professional in training) in Japan. So he must have done some things right in his Go study, as he points out himself :-)

Robert Jasiek
