Reading resistors?

in the part of the lesson introducing 5 stripe resistors, the example resistor has a brown stripe on both ends. How do you know which end to start reading from?

Yes. Good point. Five stripe resistors are tricky, and it takes a bit of intuition and practice to know which side to start from. That said, if you don't know which side, you can always measure the resistance using a multimeter. When in doubt, do that.
