I have been working with Chess Mentor lessons for about six months, now, and have developed a formula that works for me almost every time. It may or may not work for others.
Whenever I am faced with a choice of two or more moves, I have found that the one which I consider the least favorable turns out to be the correct one. From that I draw two conclusions; that it is a sneaky way to win, and that I am a hopeless chess dunce.
Kudos for your insight.

Posting a couple of specific examples would be very helpful in this case. That is, if you're still having the same problem after 3 years, of course.
That's like trying to solve any puzzle. It wouldn't be a puzzle if the solution was just a normal move, so you know it's some crazy move. I'm not sure how useful that is for real chess when most of the time the best move is a "normal" looking move.
Some crazy move and punish the blunders successfully !
