ABC Solving Strategy Tips

The first step when solving ABC puzzles is to use pencilmarks to work out the options for each square in the grid. The best way to start reducing the options and work out what goes where is to start at the top left, and work round clockwise, looking at each row and column for which you know the first letter in that direction (that is, where there is a letter outside that row and column).

We know that there are two blanks per region. Therefore if you see an 'A' at the start of a row, then you know that the 'A' can only be placed in the first three cells of that row. So you can remove it as an option for the remaining cells in that row. The reason is that the A must be the first letter we come across - and since there are a maximum of two blanks, then it must be in position three at the latest. My going round the grid and applying this logic, you will be able to get started with solving the ABC puzzles.
