    Chess Tactics by Paul Littlewood is an excellent tactics primer which can be picked up cheaply second hand on Abebooks

    Sharpen your chess tactics in 7 days by Gary Lane is also a good book covering tactics in the opening, middlegame and endings

    Improve your chess tactics by Yakov Neishtadt is when you want to go further and is a highly regarded book.
