Easiest Way to Solve a 3x3 Rubik's Cube - Layer by Layer Beginners' Method - scroll to the bottom to find a list of the algorithms used in this video.

If you are new to cubing, here is a great tutorial that will teach you how to solve a Rubik's Cube. I hope this tutorial helps you with your first steps in the world of cubing.

The idea of this video is not that you copy the exact moves I do - this video is meant to teach you the algorithms and when to use them, using my cube as an example. It's up to you to apply the knowledge to your own cube.﻿
