Hey, I'm looking either for the page here that lists recommended books for problems or peoples personal advice.
Specifically, I am a 14k player on KGS and I am looking for a good book of problems that will help me improve. I'd also like it to be cheap so I can toss it in my bag and not worry about it getting beaten up.

I would second the 4 Volume Graded Go Problems for Beginners with the same stipulation. I still go through them at around 7Kyu. Some of the ones in the 4th Volume are fairly challenging at my level even after completing them.

i like the "graded go problems for beginners" very much, but the "official" dificulty ranking is quite ridiculous. actually, its more like:
volume 1: 30-20k (first games on big board)
volume 2: 20-10k
volume 3: 10-5k
volume 4: 5k-1k
(this should be an answer to the problem books task?! think im getting something wrong here..)

I would also suggest getting the entire series at 14k. I know i did. Even if the volume 1 is easy for your level, its also good to go through quickly to lock the concepts in and get fast at reading. A dan player told me that they now do the same with the later volumes. So really, this series is useful for a very long time.

graded go problems is definitely nice, and after you have managed the second book, and when you get to about 9-8k on KGS i can definitely recommend get strong at tesuji...
