of my past articles can be accessed and viewed online at billiards.colostate.edu. The reference numbers used
in the articles help you locate the resources on the website. If you have a slow or inconvenient Internet

I am very excited to start a new series of articles highlighting drills and principles from a project I recently
finished with fellow BD columnist Bob Jewett entitled: "The Video Encyclopedia of Pool Practice (VEPP)."
Like the "Video Encyclopedia of Pool Shots (VEPS)" series, which I released with past BD columnist Tom
Ross several years ago, VEPP is also a 5-disc instructional DVD collection. VEPP is an organized and
methodical training program and pool workout. It teaches you how to develop, assess, and track progress of
skills in all aspects of your game. VEPS showed all principles and shot types possible at the table and VEPP
shows you how to develop the skills required to apply the VEPS knowledge.
An outline of the collection of drills Bob and I cataloged, organized into 5 major areas and 30 distinct
categories, is listed below. VEPP includes over 175 drills and challenges within the 30 categories. The
complete and detailed outline can be viewed online at: dr-dave-billiards.com/vepp. Here's the list of the
main categories:
VEPP I Fundamentals and Basic CB Control
