So I got a few books!
So, I have to recomend this as much as anything! Get Some BOOKS!! If you can't afford books, then get to work on the "Tactics Training" provided on here. You'll find tactics in just about every book you will find, but these here are interactive, and they time you... kind of like playing in a real game!
First on my booklist:
Back to Basics: Tactics by Dan Heisman
Logical Chess Move by Move Every Move Explained by Irving Chernev
Mostly, I'm getting better by having begun that first book, and playing a lot of tactics on here! I'm acually having FUN getting better!!
It makes that initial shock of realizing how bad of a player I started out as not so bad... : ) I'll check in from time to time and let you know how I'm doing!
