Hi. Is using the Levi-Civita symbol to calculate cross-product combos like(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Ax (BxC) allot faster than just using the good old determinant method?

I ask because my lecturer in electrodynamics 2 told us it is better, but it seems to me that it's going to cost me time to learn to use this method efficiently (it took me over 20 minutes to do a triple cross product with it!). Will the pay-off be worth the practice?
