Post some hands that are giving you problems over in the hand analysis sections and people here can give you some help too.
+1, you just gotta play a ton and get into the habit of thinking about what a player's range is. Don't just say "he's probably got a good hand"-- instead, think to yourself, "he open-raised UTG, he probably has a strong range here of 99+, AJs+, AQo+". As the hand goes along, try to adjust his range based on the information he's given you. Take it slowly, and I'd recommend playing just one table at a time while you're trying to work on this.
Gl on the tables.
