Take a look at these:
I especially like these too:
I plan to buy these once I get good enough that I think I am not jumping into the deep end of the pool before I can swim, if you know what I mean.

The best shots to practice are those which you have difficulty with. Those when you say "I hate these shots".
So keep track of what you have trouble with, then ask for drills for those specific shots.
You may not want to practice these as you amy not be so good at them, but that is the exact reason to do so. And it can be frustrating at first, but you may find you actually like shooting the shots after practicing them daily for two months or so.

I'm like Billy Bob... I find that practicing the difficult shot does give me confidence in my shot making. I also try to include getting position (difficult position), after I become comfortable with the shot.
The Practice Drills that Big Rig brought to the table are very good. When you can run through these with ease, most players will run from you.
