Drill/Progress System - 09-07-2012, 06:26 AM

A while back I read about a set of drills/tests you can do that will actually track your progress and shows your improvements. There was a website with all the different levels ect.

Can anyone tell me the name of this or give me the website, I tried a search of the forums but I don't really remember what I am looking for.

Thanks,

SS

Bob Jewett has written extensively on progressive drills. Search for this or posts by Bob. There are some resources on his website for this as well.

I don't remember how I found this site but it has some good trackable drills to rate your skills.

You may mean this: http://www.sfbilliards.com/progpract.pdf
More important than those specific drills is that you figure out how to make your own progressive practice drills for the shots that you have trouble with in game situations. If you understand the format, you should be able to do that pretty easily.

People keep asking, "What should I practice?" The answer is simple: the shots that you fail on during play.

There are several *measureable tests/systems*. The main thing is, that YOU start to measure your progress, having the right attitude to improve.
