practice practice practice of course reading some books cant hurt either
best thing is to do both. Books provide knowledge the more u have the better ur going to get. But without experience to go with it through practice the knowledge will be forgotton most likely. So both.

I disavowel that.
what is the most beneficial for new chess players? having a lot of practices or reading much chess books? what should "new chess players" do???
Books are helpful guides but honestly Chess Lessons from an experienced Chess Master is much better the $15-$24 is worth it if your prepared to work hard and do what he says.
Many written languages (Hebrew, Arabic among them) do without vowels as a necessity. The same for spaces between words (Japanese, Mandarin, etc.)
Sorry for getting off topic, though!
wht? stpd vwels?
But he was typing english....see the difference?
Get chessmaster grandmaster edition. Its like having your own teacher and college course in chess. Its the best place to start.
Of course - not trying to start an argument here. I'm just inclined to investigate linguistic curiosities. At any rate, everyone understood what he wrote, even without the vowels.
Study chess tactics. Take a look at www.chesstactics.org for some good, free instruction.

GreenLaser: that's why I said "as a necessity". From what I understand (and I don't speak the languages myself) the vowel diacritics are not used in all written forms, and strictly speaking are not necessary, though of course they do help. The wikipedia entry on "abjad" has a decent summary.
By the way, there are some people who study this sort of thing who consider that English is somewhere between an alphabet and a logographic system like Chinese. In that case, the individual "parts" (i.e. letters) are not as important as the whole.
Practice is necessary if you want to improve your skills in chess. But I would recommend that you play in tournaments. Reading chess books is essential as well as consulting strong players about what you read and understand.

hey i am sorry.. i don't want to cause arguments..i just wanted write "short headline" so i didn't use vowels.of course "what is the best" is shorter than "wht's th bst fr nw chss plyrs" however i wanted to call "what is the best for new chess players" cos that is more understandable for content of my theme...
Accepted..However, it's not the amount of vowels that makes a winded statement. It is the amount of unnecessary words.
