Just google an analog clock.  Find a simulator.  That will show you what is clockwise and what is anticlockwise.

### Re: need help

I have no idea what you mean...

I solve centres, match up the edges, fix parity, then solve as a 3x3.

Different people fix them in different ways.  Some position them opposite and solve in slices.  I position them in adjacent sides and drop them in.

Pros to their method - it allows you to drop 2 or even 4 in at once.
Cons to their method - once you get past 8 completed edges it becomes tricky.

Pros to my method - It is very easy, even after 8 edges
Cons to my method - not designed to complete multiple edges at once.

Here's part 1 of my full 5x5 guide.

and part 4 (edge pairing) - where you're up to...

Hope this helps.

Hi borginator your video really helped but i am stuck with getting the last 2 pieces in to place coz when i try to put one into place it gets fix but then it transfers to the other side so it just repeats and repeat what should i do?

### Re: need help

that is a parity error (a.k.a last two edges) there is algerithms for fixing them, here's a link to a good website on all the parity cases.

### Re: need help

Glad the vids helped.  There is a part of that tutorial that deals with the parity algs.  I forget which part though.  There are 2 parity algs for the 5x5.  Have a look see...
