I would not say that completing the square is ALWAYS the best method. There are several methods available to solve quadratic equations.

1) Graphing and visually seeing where the x-intercepts are.

2) Factoring

3) Substitution

4) Completing the Square

5) Quadratic Formula

These methods are in no particular order.
