I currently average 6-8 seconds using Sarah's Intermediate. How can I improve?
For starters, Practice a lot I know that you probably already know that, but that is one of the most important things that you can do. Also, make sure that you practice getting your first layer solved in 6 or less moves (I say 6 because that is what I get quite often). To go off of the first layer, make sure that you have everything planned out for the first layer during inspection.I currently average 6-8 seconds using Sarah's Intermediate. How can I improve?
Just like you would do on 2x2 if you use LBL. And what I mean, is if you can plan your first layer out in inspection then as you are solving that then you can look ahead and see how the U layer pieces are setting up (as in what OLL case it will be). The other thing that you can do is, if you can already plan your first layer during inspection, then you could practice planning the first layer and what OLL case you will get. Hope that this helps.How can I predict the OLL case?
Thank you for mentioning that. I was thinking about adding that in above, but I was not certain if that was what @AMCuber, was thinking about, but I guess that I should have, so thank you for doing it.I would actually suggests learning advanced If you want to improve. It's not as many cases as you may think, as many of the cases are basically the same thing in advanced.
Most of the advanced cases are just doing intermediate from different angles. Sledges and hedges are just predicting what you are going to get, and the rest are pretty easy. I suggest Luigi's tutorial, but that isn't finished, so I'd go to Kennan's after watching Luigi's.Thank you for mentioning that.

If you do not mind me asking, but what would be the best way to start learning Sarah's Advanced cases? I was looking at starting with them, but there seems to be so many, but I am sure that these is a relatively easy way of going about it. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
There's like 50 or so different cases, but a lot of them you won't really know the difference between them. For example, there are 8 cases where you do a sledge/hedge y(') sledge hedge to solve it, but you recognize them all the same.That's it? I thought there were like 50!
Cool. Practicing solves while using CLL would be the best way to get better. You can also use a CLL trainer. You can find that by simply googling CLL trainer.Speaking of CLL, I am currently learning CLL. I can recognise all of the cases, but it takes me like 2 seconds to analyze the CLL.
This was something i struggled with too. Go to CStimer and go to skewb scrambles. Find the most efficient layer you can (try to do this without turning the cube) and then type that into CStimer. For finding things, just try doing random triggers and see what they do to different layers.Are there any good resources for skewb layer cases/ tips?
It's my weakest point, I struggle to find good consistent layer solutions, especially for scrambles with 1 or no corners solved.
Is there a printable paper which I could use, instead of this video?Most of the advanced cases are just doing intermediate from different angles.
