Everything about Sudoku that doesn't fit in one of the other sections

I have only just started doing Sudoku puzzles and I have just finished my first one. It was an easy rating but it took me 30 minutes to complete. How long should an easy sudoku take.

I am going to attempt another one, hopefully I will completed in a quicker time.

Kind Regards

It all depends how long you have been practising for. I am a great believer that practice makes perfect when it comes to Su Doku. My first 'easy' took me about 20 minutes and now I have it down to less than 4 after a lot of practice.

In my opinion there is no better way to practice than do 1 or Su Dokus a day, maybe the ones from the Times, as there are 2 each day (On Mondays and Tuesdays there are fairly easy ones). In addition to that, have a look around this site, picking up tips from everywhere you can, and have a look at Simes' and AngusJ's websites, which are useful for learning the techniques.

Hope this helps,
