Reading Resistors?

Sorry if I missed this detail in the lesson. When reading resistors to find the value, how do we determine from which end to start reading colors? I understand we read from left to right, but how do we determine which end is left?

With 4-band resistors it is towards the tolerance band which is typically gold (or sometimes silver). 5-band resistors are trickier because the band is often brown.
