Learn to solve with yellow cross, along with your white cross.

I do white and yellow cross on bottom. It is a lot easier to get white/yellow neutral than full-color neutral, because you are used to seeing yellow and white mainly in your solves. I like it because if you have a bad white cross, you can look to the yellow cross, and vice versa.

I've thought about it but it seems tough, any suggestions on how to get good with CN real fast?
It is tough at first, and your times will suck until you improve, but what I did was just start solving like I was CN and accept my terrible times. Say you solve white cross. Eventually, after solving red, blue, orange, etc. enough, you'll just get to the point where you stop associating Blue-White with cross, Orange-Green with F2L, Yellow-Red with LL, etc.

TL;DR solve random colors until you get used to it.

It is important to note that this won't happen overnight. It took me about a month to get decent. I'm two months in now, and I'm only just now considering myself fully CN. Patience and practice is the key.

Thanks again, and yes I will try to be patient. I hope it will pay off!
