Memorize this:

the front of the top is the top of the front.
The top of the front is the front of the top.
The side of the front is the front of the side.

This will work wonders for you:

When you apply this, you will see different lines/dotted lines showing changes of direction, or lines etc. on either the front or side. You can then count them and compare them to the actual design or line breaks on the object. It takes practice but once you understand it, they become a lot easier...It's hard to explain without actually showing you examples...if someone can post some type of picture it might be easier to visualize.

follow the "memorize this" instructions and draw a line from one break, or change of direction to it's corresponding line/dotted line on the other diagram....I hope that makes sense.

Also learn how to count "events". An event is any deviation in a plane. For instance lets say we are looking at the front of a cube

[|||]
(front view) RED= edges of cube


This cube front would have 3 vertical events (breaks in the parallel plane). We do not know if theses breaks in the plane of the page jut in or out of the plane of the page. We must refer to the end view and/or top view for this info. Sometimes you can eliminate answer choices simply by events in different views.
