What is reasonable amount of time to get 1600 or higher from 1200 if you play games quite often, and spend some time every day with Chessmaster interactive training,learning strategy, tactics, endgame, resolving various chess problems. I assume my chess talent isn't nothing more then average though I am in love with the game. I have friends that have 1600, even 1800, so playing with them isn't so fun, so I can play games with even opponents only on internet. (most often fics). How much it takes to reach their level of play?
