Practice solving the Cross and the First Two Layers. You should be able to get that under 30 seconds when you become  better at 'looking ahead' to see which move to do next. while doing a move.

From there I'd recommend learning a few algorithms for Orienting and Permuting Edges and Corners. Figure out when to apply those algorithms and keep practising them until you can execute them quickly without thinking too hard about what you're doing.

drumstick,

I use Petrus. Very intuitive, and not many algorithms to learn. Petrus gives me times like 30 seconds, and i learned it only about a month ago!

You could also learn the roux method. Also very intuitive. Still not many algorithms to learn. I learned it a few days ago and it's given me sub-minute times!

Here's the link for Petrus: Rubik's Cube Solution

Here's the link for Roux: The Roux Method

Good luck and happy cubing!
