? Im so confused ill purchase a chess book lol :D
Don't get an openings book. If you're failing at tactics, practice them.
http://www.chesstactics.org/ and practice on this site.
But study endgame. Firstly, make sure you know how to mate with 2 queens, 2 rooks, 1 queen, 1 rook, 2 bishops. Then do pawn endings, rule of opposition, king activity etc.
Learning an opening barely teaches you anything at a low level. The principles are enough.
Does it cost to do the tactics on this site?
You can only do a few free I think. Check your messages.
Here is a youtube video witch explains chess notation very well.
Understanding chess notation isn't necessary to just play but if you want to get better it is well worth a few minutes to learn it.
