I am tired of getting slaughtered on ICC, and I don't learn theory well from books. Any ideas?
Peace,
Nate

www.chess.fm has free chess video lectures. You may find Openings for Amateurs useful.

IMHO, (In my humble opinion), books aren't very good resources to use. I read something that said people that are good at solving chess problems, aren't too good at a full chess game. My suggestion is to just keep playing! Play against yourself (just don't take one side or another), play with your friends, play online ect. ect.

I love to play against myself. That is how I got to where I am right now (co-champion of my chess club). Normally what I do is I come out on one side with my standard move. Then on the other side I expirement. I do something different (sometimes very unorthodox) change something ect. Again, don't take one side or another.

Hope this helps.

Signed,
Lord Mactalon

The best book I've checked out has been Logical Chess: Move by Move, by Chernev. Every move is explained, which helps a lot, especially openings. Chessmaster also has some illustrated games, move by move, narrated by the Bobby Fisher movie kid, I forget his name.

You may want to check this book. It is a test to figure out what you need to work on. It's "Chess Exam and Training Guide" by Igor Khmelnitsky; see http://www.iamcoach.com/chess/chessexam.htm

I have used it and it's was well worth my while. BTW, Igor K. is a great coach if you are looking for one.

I really like the game Chessmaster 9000 (not sure if there's a newer version out now). It has a bunch of tutorials, and different modes where you can receive criticism and suggestions from the computer when making a move. Plus, it has a wide range of skill levels to play and progress against. Josh Waitkins (sp?) is featured in the tutorials.
