Collection overview
There are four sets of problems with an increasing level:

Level Difficulty Problems Go to...
Level 1 25 kyu - 15 kyu 200
Level 2 15 kyu - 5 kyu 200
Level 3 5 kyu - 1 kyu 150
Level 4 1 kyu - 4 dan 200

Select the level in the first column to solve it from the start or enter the desired number in the last column and press the tab key to go to a specific problem.

The recommended way to study is to solve these kind of problems during a half hour or one hour. It's the way they use it in Korea, every day. When you finish a level, you have to start again, 4 or 5 times.

Originally there are no answers in these books. Gobase gives answers because there are people curious to know about baduk without a specific attention for their level or their strength. But if you want to improve: never go to read answers, try to understand by yourself... and if you want an advice on what you find, you can send me E-mail with your solution and then I will tell you if it's good or not.
