# Thread: Remembering the PLL Algs?

1. ## Remembering the PLL Algs?

How do you guys remember the different algs?

I learn this one the other week:

Then learnt this one the other day:

Yet the particular alg i learnt for both are really similar, and as soon as i learnt the second one, i couldnt really remember the first one.

Is there any particular technique you can use to help remember them?

2. What algs do you use for them?

3. For ones that are similar, you just do them a lot. You kind of find the flow of each algorithm. Like, that first algorithm, it's probably one of the easiest, you should be able to do it in almost one fluid motion, because all the moves connect well to eachother. The second one has more breaks so you can chunk it into 3 seperate parts. (R' U R' U') y (R' F') (R2 U' R' U R' F R F R'). And, at first, you will tend to confuse with other ones, but with practice, it'll go away.

4. ## fingertricks

Create fingertricks.
first go thru the algorithm on your cube as you read it. then school youself to memorize it in your hands.
I consentrate alot when learning a new alg.
what I think of is simply what feels natural to do, and conclude on some things, such as: cube rotation, different ie. U2 approaches, fingertrick groups and repetitive moves.

I made a little video on how I execute some PLL algs.
its not that detailed but I first show the alg slowly and then fast.

5. i learn one alg until he is really down (or sometimes two) then i just cube and basically wait for the cases. i usually see the case and know what to do, because i did this one alg over and over. sometimes there are delays and then i know i need some moe practice on that alg. when i know that i can recognize the pll without a delay i move on to the next one. the same with olls.

6. Cool

So what alg do you use for the first one?

I have been mostly going off leyan lo's pll page, basically just because it has a good layout and doesnt take for ever to load like some, yet some of his alg's are ugly while others i can execute really quickly.

7. the first is a T Permutation and the second is a V Perm.
I dont think I use the same algs tho

My T perm is : R2U'R2uR2 x' L2UL2u'r2

8. i try to see a pattern in the alg,when i find a pattern its much easier to remember,for me any way.

9. my method is firstly i jsut look at the alg, and put in brackets where i think finger tricks will be, i then just do the alg over and over and over. After ive done this, i take my alg page away and see if i can remember it. Again just doing it over and over. I did this every night for a month to learn the PLL's and eventually it became really easy to learn algs and distinguish between them all.

10. Learn the two N perms and the E last, since they are more unlikely to come up than the rest. (Except for H and Z, learn them though because M turns pwn)
