Is solving compositions good?

I have heard many opinions. Some say it will improve calculation. Some says it is not good.

even I too have got many opinions regarding this

I would share my point of view and then you can decide

1) If you play games that require calculations and sharp play, solving them might help

2) If you have time, solving them will give you happiness and confidence

3) Kasparian's domination, 1234 endgame studies and sam Lloyd's puzzles would be best for rating range 1400+ although anyone can solve them if you like

4) Study- like solutions will most likely not help in practical play if the openings are dry

5) They can be entertaining yet tough to crack, so one must choose them wisely

6) It can help a lot in understanding piece coordination and geometry

7) It can surely help in swindling and slp
