If you are of 'intermediate ablility - rated say 1200 to 1600) the 'Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book) will help you improve your tactical skills. Plenty of problems, few if any errors in printing or analysis and well organized. Tactic puzzle and opening traps books are the two best types of books to get for quick improvement in your pattern recognition.

This is the absolute number one puzzle book in my view. Brilliant for training in tactics, and for warming up mentally before important games. It starts off with 100 easy examples, and then the standard of difficulty gradually increases until the final chapter - The Ultimate Challenge. The game examples chosen are original and appropriate, and the publisher has computer verified all positions for accuracy.
