    can someone explain how to use inspection time properly do you guys plan out the cross and first f2l pair by remembering 8 moves and see what they do to the pair or do you remember them by order of colour of edge you are doing because i find it difficult to remember 8 moves everytime

    what we do is plan first cross during inspection and at the beginning, mostly just track a corner or an edge.you only pay attention to the moves that move around the corner/edge. normally we find the easiest pair to track, usually the ones that are affected the least by the cross being built. we recognize the case, but not the exact solution. personally i plan cross, track the pieces then let muscle memory handle 1st pair while looking around for pieces. hope this helped!

    The trick is not to try to remember the moves but rather to try and work out how you want to move each piece.

    When fast solvers plan they don't plan "R U F U R..." they think "oh I'll move this piece here which brings this one over there so then I can do this piece" and go with that plan.
