Endgame studies.

What you guys think about the domination in chess endgame studies by Kasparian?

 I was reading an article and that article covered the same problem of calculation and vision which I am facing now.

So is it useful to solve endgame studies before middle game studies or other books.

Because my problem is lack of ability to read the middle game books in depth and I miss many plans in middle game books.

Any advice. I personally like two books Pump up your chess and domination in endgames and I do not know how to study the Devorestsky's Endgame Manual.

Any suggestions?

I'd recommend you to study (not just reading through, I mean studying it so you can apply what you learned) only one book at a time. I think Pump up your rating would be great to study because the author and the readers had success with it.

I don't know that Kasparian book you mentioned, but solving studies regularly will improve your vision and calculation.

I have heard that endgame studies are extremely important in developing imagination and calculation abilities.They force you to think out side of the box. I haven’t heard of the book but any book with a collection of studies should be fine.

I do focus on one or two book at a time. I also like endgames study because of few pieces on board so a bit easier than middlegame. In middle game we have to focus on many things. but in endgame less pieces will improve vision and calculation power.

So thanks .I have already 1000s of books and 200+ dvds but I need proper advice to study. 

Study in right path with right mood matters instead of material.

Seems like you have too much material! Just study the book and reap the results.
