I have been cubing for about a month now and i learned the beginner meathod all by myself. i figured out everything up untill pll and oll. anyway, i thought i would try my hand at learning the Fridrich method. While trying to learn all the algorithims for F2l i realized something that i never realized before: every algorithum has a second alg that is more or less the same moves, only prefored on a diffrent side of the cube.

for example:
R U' R' U2 F' U' F is pretty much the same as F' U F U2 R U R' except they are preforemed on diffrent sides of the cube.

after realizing this it has been aloth easier to memorize the algs. i just memorized one then i memorize its partner alg.

also when i memorize the algs i usually do it in front of the TV and try to get the alg down until i can watch the tv and not even think about the alg i am doing. i hotpe this helps some people when trying to memorize F2l

has anyone else noticed that the algs have parter algs? and what do you do when you memorize algs?

These are mirror images! Every Alg has a mirror image.
The PLL and OLL also have mirror images.
Yeh, repititon is the key!(for me at least)

All F2L algs except one have a mirror case, as do many OLLs.

As for memorising F2L, nothing better than doing it intuitively, which eventually leads to memorisation of cases.

"The skill of the artist is the ability to force the mind to act on the level of intuition. Skill is a recollection of inpiration and therefore is partly a noble imitation of it. Inspiration may be intermittent, and in this case skill fills in the gaps." -Fazil Iscander

And cubers are artist, aren't they?
