1. ## help with solving.

Well I am new to the forum.(first day actually) And I am not sure how things works so if I am posting this in the wrong place or something then sorry. I was wondering what is the fastest method for solving the 3x3x3 cube? a website? I can solve one with the basic method but I want to be faster by using less moves and a different method. thanks for any help and what is the best brand for a cube??? I have heard that eastsheen is good, better than rubik's.

2. i'm sorry to say this, but search bar.

to start off you should decide on your own on what method you want to learn, I personally use the fridrich method, which algs can be found on the wiki.

OR

you can find out other methods.
EX ZZ Roux petrus

oh and the best cubes are

2x2 - LanLan or ghosthand
3x3 - Guhong, A5, or type FII
4x4 - maru
5x5 - v-cube 5 (can't remember the same one but without the bumbs)
6x6 - v-cube 6
7x7 - V-cube 7

others can varie

If you do not like buying knock offs, try buying the QJ 4x4 (mini or normal sized), eastsheen 4x4, mefferts 4x4, or dayan 4x4

true, i just forgot the other one that just came out.

5. i know an easy method so while i am learning another will i get confused because i am used to do other stuff? basically will it be more difficult to change methods than starting with the fridrich's method? i expect it wont but i may be wrong.

6. if you want to get faster, faster. (if that made any sense) then get into a advanced method, and do it fast, because then you get a good feel for it

P.S. if you decide to learn Fridrich, earn F2l intuitively, its better.

look around the forum , and look at different methods, and see which ones it you personally.

7. i solve it like shown here: http://www.youcandothecube.com/secre...stage-one.aspx
is this the one I should try? it looks very similar http://webpages.charter.net/metgo/advanced.html
or something more like this? http://dougreed.homeunix.com/~doug/f2l/f2l.htm

or you can give me a link if you want

the one in bold is good, but seriously, learn to use the search bar, and the wiki
http://www.speedsolving.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

9. oh so this method that you are suggesting for me to do is basically the same thing just adding more algorithms. thanks for all the help. i will use th wiki and search bar. Just one more question, what method does the 3x3 record holder use??

10. Fridrich. If I'm not wrong (correct me if I am) I believe the top 100 times in the world were all accomplished with Fridrich.
