I'm wondering what the thought process behind solving anagrams is, as in, pulling words out of random letters, like in the game Countdown.
I am never very good at this game, and I think it's because I'm not going about it in the right way.
I look at a letter, "D" for example, then think of words I know that begin with D, and go through them ruling each out as a letter in the word isn't in my group of letters. It's obviously a very poor way of doing it.
How do you find words in a collection of letters?
