Can anyone give me some tips on these? I know if it's 2-3-2, the 3 is white. If it's 6-6-7-6, the right most 6 is black. Any other hints?

First you find all the ones that has to be white. Then they hopefully lead to some black ones. Around the black ones you must have white squares.
After that you make white everything that can be white.
Then I experiment with the remaining numbers.

elo15, that's how I start. The next parts are "shape"--you can't trap a corner (or section) in black, so if you have 2 diagonal squares on the corner and on is black, the other must be white. You can then use this for trapped diamonds (can't have 4 black surrounding a white square), or even whole sections. You can also use a sort of inverse rule--if there's nothing to make a number black (e.g. it's unique in its row and column), then it must be white.
