I'm currently learning Sarah's advanced to try and bring down my times a bit, I'm currently averaging high 4s. If anyone could critique this skewb average with any tips as well that would be great!
I'm not very good at critiques, but from what I see, there are a couple things I noticed.

Inspection: Use more, your layers are quite inefficient
Advanced: You seem to be pausing in between sledges. learn what leads to what


You also might benefit from learning some algs for the worse advanced cases. Your turning is pretty good :).

Does anyone know if there are any TCLL resources for Skewb? I’m starting to go through some of it and made a list of solutions for an intermediate step that will only solve the u later center.
Yes, actually: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1j-SGlgZk20D3d2TyeiXhMWzeyTBuuix3Owgj9Q8rNbo/edit?usp=sharing

This has more than just TCLL and is really good for a lot of things so I recommend you check it out if you wanna improve ;)

I’m learning them in small groups of similar cases, I was just wondering if there is a good order to do it in, ie. peanut center on u cases first and pure pi last or something like that

Z3cubing is the best when it comes to Skewb tutorials on youtube.
Z3 isnt even that good. I would reccoomend karam al robai, george scholey, jayden mcneill, rami, riley norrid, my channel(I do loads of skewb), and luigi soriano
In my opinion, when the case is nothing -> beginner or beginner-> intermediate, Z3Cubing is the best. He is clear about the basic concepts and he is patient in his tone.

But once you get pass that, Z3Cubing have no vids at all and the peoples @u Cube mentions helps a lot. So they are both good in some way.

Everything reduces to a different case until you only have a sledge/hedge left. There are like 5 different things you need to learn and then you just put an adjacent center in front and you're all set.
