How to solve a Rubik's Cube

  1. Feb 2, 2008 #1
    Some tutorials that helped me learn the Rubik's Cube: http://sciencehack.com/pages/page015

    I'd like more complex ones though with a focus on strategy and speed cubing. Any ideas?

    Try starting with these links, especially those under speed cubing.
    Google is your friend.


    The Fridrich method seems to be the most common for speed cubing. First you put in the edge pieces on the bottom, then complete the first two layers. Next you orient the pieces in the last layer, then finally permute the pieces in the last layer.
    There are many other methods. I learned on the Petrus method. You start by assembling a 2x2x2 corner, then a 2x2x3, then orient the edges and go from there.
