    Default Puzzle solving methods--> total newb

    So, I'm new to this whole treasure hunting/puzzle solving thing as it seems to be presented in most of these hunts. I've done quite a bit of puzzle solving, but it's mostly been of the complicated riddle w/pictures variety-- which, among other things, makes me really curious to poke around with The Golden Apple Tale and The Secret.

    It seems that those sorts of puzzles are used in a lot of hunts, but there are a whole lot of things that I've never heard of before floating around in here: 5x5 grids, very complicated letter substitutions, and just general terms for things that I've probably done a thousand times, but don't know what they're called.

    Now, I'm not opposed to doing a whole lot of reading without really knowing precisely if what I'm looking at is something that's useful or not-- in a lot of ways, that's what puzzle solving is all about. But I'd much rather spend my time solving puzzles than trying to figure out puzzle solving methods. No need to re-invent the wheel and all that. And I've tried picking through the forums, but most of the discussion seems to presume you've heard of all these things before, and I haven't.

    Could someone point me towards a good website or still-in-print book that's informative and helpful? I'd be very, very thankful.
