Fill in the answers with a pencil and have an eraser ready for any mistakes. Start on easy puzzles and don't get tempted to progress to another level until you have solved several easy puzzles. Sudoku is all about logic, and if you look carefully at the grid, it often becomes evident where the number needs to go. You need to look at the whole grid, even as you work on each section. It's difficult to tell you how to do this, but the more sudokus you complete, the easier you will find them.

The tactic is not at your brain but at your eyes. Take the first look at the rows, the columns or the squared apprearing many numbers, then consider the blank blocks. As usual, there must exist a key block where you have only one number possibility to choose. Well, then go on.

Yes if you have say three boxes of 9 across ways i.e. 1 1 1 then look in the first box and if say a 3 is in the top row then you know it wont be in that row in the next two boxes. Instead of completing one box of 9 at a time go through them doing all the numbers in turn instead and this will make it easier. Try it
