    Chess to enjoy!

    Simplistic problems for the beginner to work on! Not easy to find problem books for super beginners but here we have one. A good way to learn the basic fundamentals of tactics.

    Not Overwhelming - a good number of basic tactics for the advanced-beginner

    If you are past the stage of having learned the basic rules of chess then you are ready to enbark of the adventure of learning chess strategy. And, what is most likely to result in wins and losses for an advanced beginner is not having a deep knowledge of openings or endgames, but TACTICS! If you were thinking of getting one of those 5,000 combination and tactics books you should hold off because you will be overwhelmed with a lot of postions that are not likely to come up in your games. Getting a book on basic chess tactics, containing the likely tactics you are going to see in play is most useful. Now there are a variety of ways and books to accomplish this. 'Beginning Chess: Over 300 Elementary Problems' is a good starting place. Then you might consider one of the dozens of more complicated tactics books or even getting a book on Opening Chess Traps to go along with this one. This is one of Mr. Pandolfini's best books.

    Great starting point.

    This is a book of problems for chess newcomers. Each on has about five pieces on the board. The object is either mate or material gain. Through this the reader should learn the basic tactics. It should also be an opportunity to start examining the consequences of each move, and mastering algebraic notation. Those will be valuable tools for further study and improvment.
