Depends on the type of code. In most cases, the trick is to figure out what type of code it is you're dealing with.

 

A good website primer for cryptology is one setup in conjunction with Simon Singh's great read, The Code Book. The associated website is called "The Black Chamber" and has an excellent tutorial about many forms of codes and ciphers.

 

Be aware, however, that many puzzle caches may and do contain ciphers which are outside the bounds of Singh's website, which tends to cover the more common or historically interesting codes and ciphers. A well written puzzle cache will usually give you a hint, even if it's just an inkling, of the type of cipher used.

 

Aside from that? Google is your friend. Good luck.

I've looked at that site to write codes. Good reference for any codes.

 

Sometimes, codes are even to advanced for that site.
