A guide to Vu-Bridge

Vu-Bridge is a bridge learning platform that works well with our lessons as Paul Bowyer is a Vu-Bridge author and the author of our teaching material. Our lessons comprise a total of 69 chapters of which, roughly, the first 20 are in our Year 1, the next 20 are in our Year 2 and the rest are Year 3 and advanced. Vu-Bridge modules are called Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3, each with 24 "issues". Some of our Year 2 Chapters are covered in Vu-Bridge Year 1 issues.

 

If you are interested we believe the appropriate subscriptions for you are Year 1 (without the bundle) for Year 1, Year 1 and Year 2 (without the bundle) for Year 2. The reason the bundles are not appropriate for Year 1 and Year 2 is that the quizzes that come with the bundle are at a more advanced level and include systems other than Acol. The cost of Year 1 is $49.99 (about £39) and Year 2 is the same. It is not an annual subscription, you retain the issues once purchased.

Year 3 decisions are a little more complex. Year 2 and Year 3 are appropriate for you but looking more long term you might enjoy the VuBridge Improvers Bundle for $159.95 which also includes Defender Level 1 and Slam Level 2 plus (for a year) quizzes. The only thing to bear in mind is that you will have to be careful in stick to the Acol authors as far as bidding is concerned which can be a bit confusing. Anyway Year 2 and Year 3 on there own is a cheaper option at (2 * $49.99) with less material.

We reiterate that Vu-Bridge is certainly not a requirement for our courses, it is entirely up to you, but if you do decide to dabble then any feedback should be appreciated.
