WORD SEARCH TIPS
Try starting your search for words at the top of the puzzle and moving from left to right work your way down the puzzle line by line. While doing this keep an eye out for words in general but also try to pick out a word from your word list to be looking for specifically. It's easier if you just look for the first letter of that specific word while you are searching. When you find that specific letter you are looking for check the surrounding six letters in each direction of that first letter. If any of them match the second letter in the word you are looking for then its possible that you've found your word. Continue along checking the subsequent letters in the chain. If it forms a word then you've found it, if you come across a letter that doesn't match then move on with your search.
