Just curious as to what everything thinks is the most efficient or quickest method of solving the 2x2x2. I'm looking to work on my times for the 2x2x2 and would appreciate if you could include links to your corresponding methods... Thanks!!!

:)

Try Guimond, you can work out your whole solve in the 15 second inspection, then solve it all in 8 seconds.

Yes, Guimond is really good. Getting to 8 seconds doesn't take too much practice. But I think even the fastest people can't work out whole solve in 15 seconds, unless there are some really easy cases...

Oh, I heard that you could, or work it all except the last step.
My bad.

My apologies for the spelling mistake in the first post.

I respect Guimond's site, but if you're going to learn the method I think it's easier to learn from Erik Akkersdijk:
http://erikku.er.funpic.org/rubik/2x2_guimond.html

Erik also has some other interesting 2x2x2 methods on his main method page (http://erikku.er.funpic.org/rubik/2x2_index_page.html). For example, the EG and OFOTA methods are both a bit faster than Guimond, but they require much more algorithms (like ZB as opposed to Fridrich/Petrus).
