#### USEFUL TIPS/Strategies - (READ) -

• Often grid clues ( such as X = 23,or Y =15 ) are provided, fill-in these first.

• Letters that appear most often in common English language are vowels ( A, E, I, O, U ), search the grid for these next.

• Look for double-letter combinations (LL, EE, OO are the most common).

• Make an educated guess. For example assume you have the following: _ NOB , an appropriate guess might be :
KNOB, or SNOB.

• 5.. Raw "trial and error" : Like Word Fill-ins(or any other word game), the best policy is to use a mix of
deduction and the exhaustive method, trying many possibilities until you come up with the correct solution.
