Hey! English is not my first language. So I was wondering whether doing Crossword puzzles help my vocabulary? Thanx.

I would just recommend reading, but I guess crossword puzzles may help.

Crossword puzzles only test your knowledge of pop culture/etc... I guess it could help you practice spell words, but I would say reading would be the best alternative. You could get Muzzy. It's this language "class" on tape. It's geared towards kids, but I don't see why you couldn't benefit. Also, if you don't feel like spending money on novels, just sign up with sparknotes, and then search a novel, some of the novels are posted word for word, and are free. So, you can read online. :)

Thank you for your input. Can you please tell me what genres of novels, or writer's novels would help me strengthen my english? I am specifically preparing towards taking a test like GRE. I want to start early as I am starting college this Fall.
