I use most of these techniques, though I will come back to the unsolved puzzles because I like my solve rate higher more than my need for speed.

Instead of #3 (from Anachronismatic's list, "start from the bottom"), I do the relationship clues after the skim for dots. These are the "Edna Evitz won 4 years before Lisa Lara" type clues. You must watch, one of the biggest ways I screw up my times is re-doing puzzles where the relationship is say 2 hours apart (say, classes at 9am, 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm), and I tick off 2 sets of boxes rather than 1 when the clue is something like "The algebra class starts 2 hours before the biology class".
