Ahh yeah I think I've got it now...so 1,2,3 you wont have finalised yet because you cant...that'll be done with info later on, right?
Yep.

For other squares, how'd you pick a good place to start...clues that cover the most squares and then work in the column/row around it like you did for this one...coz I'm guessing starting anywhere wouldn't really work?
Just by seeing what you can deduce from the given information, and what you've already worked out.

There may be serveral possible next steps.

The next one I got is trickier.

You can show that A6=1.

How? By showing that B6,C6,D6,... can't be 1. Have a go.
2. Next step

you should be able to narrow down E5 and E6 to two possible values each, and then you can get E2, and hence D2.
