which is faster, clicking check right away when i finish and then dealing with the possible mistakes, or taking the time to read the puzzle through before check it? any thoughts?

Good question...after awhile alot of us do not read the puzzle as we are solving it, we just enter the letters and hit enter...when you are new you do tend to read the puzzles but as you become more familiar with the letter patterns and structures of the quotes, reading them is only done, in my case, if I am stuck after I hit enter or check it...or after it is solved.

So I would suggest just hit enter and if you end up getting alot of errors then go back to reading them as you solve.

Hope that helps?!:)

You'll start to recognize certain letter patterns the longer you play. Some words or phrases will jump out at you. I only read the puzzles when I'm left with empty spaces and there are multiple possibilities to fill it in... that's when reading the context helps. Otherwise, reading slows you down.

You'll get there! Keep playing! And remember, above all else, just HAVE FUN!! :D
