    Default Advice - pieces of advice

    Hello,
    There are some uncountable words.
    I learnt some of them and advice seems to be one of them.
    So that means I have 3 advices for you! should be wrong.
    Right would be I have 3 pieces of advice for you!
    However, those are the British rules.
    Is it the same for the American English?

    Unfortunately, I can't remember the other words right now...
    Maybe you can give me a hint...

    Cheers!

    Absolutely true.
