If you are rated less than 1800 and really want to improve...
Do daily tactic : On the net (Chess Tempo or Chess Tactics Server) or whith your favorite program (CTB, Ct-Art 3.0, Chessimo) but train every day.Not less than 15 min a day. Preferably one hour a day : half hour in the morning and repeat later. Train your tactic muscle. No rest day ! Do this for 21 days at least !
Tactic is almost undoubtedly the most productive single area that beginners and intermediates can study to improve their game – the more practice, the better. Dan Heisman (Novice Nook n°4)
