The books listed above are Taiwanese translations of the Korean originals. As of October 2008, there does not appear to be a Mainland Chinese edition (based upon searches for 儿童围棋阶梯讲义).


to be added


Malweth: These books have little written Chinese in them and are therefore very easy to figure out. I'm still not sure why there are some sections with numbers and either "A" or "B" next to them - I don't think these correspond to the difficulty of the respective problem number because there aren't enough numbers (perhaps 75 "A" or "B" and 300 problems in the following section).

Each book has about 500 problems. The main problem section deals with Life and Death, the next section with Ko problems.

When I was perusing these books in Taiwan, I mistakenly looked at just the first few problems before deciding to only get volumes 5+6. I should have gotten the first four volumes as well as volume 5 reaches high kyu to dan level problems very quickly.

I would recommend 5 for 2k-2d, and 6 for 1d-3d (just estimates - I'm only 5-7k).

John Pinkerton?: It appears that the ISBN's for the children's go problems series aren't correct. There are not 6 unique numbers. Based in the [ext] web page, it appears that the correct numbers are:
