Mostly on chesstempo and lichess because they are taken from actual games. Chess.com has good puzzled but sometimes wrongly thematised or classified but I can understand the paterns quickly. Last day I hit 2000 on lichess puzzles.

I solve on lichess and chess24. Chess24 puzzles are very complicated and improve calculations a lot.

I also use visualwize books which helps me to visualize positions and solve it after 4 moves from the diagram

CT-ART 4.0 on my mobile phone. Mostly while on the metro. And the woodpecker method book (I copied the puzzle and had always a few pages with me).

Wow, this is also something new for me, thank you. 

In what level are the puzzles?

@ Susanne:

CT-ART distinguishes difficulty levels 10, 20 to 100. Most puzzles I have solved are up to level 50 and that was challenging for me (ELO around 1990) even though I solve them in thematic order and therefore know the topic of the puzzle.

The App has a test functionality that allows you to choose the difficulty levels and topics to be include. The test can also focus on puzzles one did not solve correctly. One can bookmark puzzles with own comments.

The App includes 2058 puzzles.

What I like most are the design of the app and that you get quite a comprehensive feedback on wrong solutions (complete variations that show why the solution is wrong).

I study ' Chess Tactics from Scratch' from Weteschnik on Chessable. After that I'm going for ' Improve Your Chess Tactics' from Neishtadt. When I'm at home I set up the positions on the board. I also solve Chesstempo standard problems for calculation practice. Next to this I started in the Yusupov books. This contains tactics, strategy, endgames but all exercises where you have to calculate.
