- Material: looking for the best way to have the advantage material
- Moves: Play some moves that have oblige
You just look for that, I think it can be easier!
I think you should set your fixed time to solve tactics.
For example: I set my fixed time to do tactics is 15 minutes, then let's see how many puzzles I can solve in 15 minutes. After that, divide number of these puzzles you solved for 15 minutes, you will receive number of tactics that you solved in 1 minute. If you don't satisfy your result, you can try again!
