Improving Chess #1: Computers
Most people try to figure out the best way to improve their chess. One solution that I recommend would be practicing against a computer program. They will constanly challenge you and force you to work on tactical postions and not hanging you pieces. If you dont have a chess computer software, then you can try many of the free postions that chess.com offers. Trust me, if you practice against the computer often, you will see improvement!
