I can give you an algorithm to solve it, but the idea behind it is gone to me :p.
The cube is made out of 26 sqaures. Hold it with one side towards you, you now see that there are three rows, and three collums of squares right? The top row, and all the squares behind that (making a total of 9 squares) is called the top layer.
The second row, with the squares behind it (making a total of 8 squares) is the middle layer.
The remaining squares are the bottom layer.
"Solving the top layer" means that you get all the squares in the top layer correct (correct is what i will use to indicate the situation as a square should be when it is solved. The right position means that it still has to be rotated before it's correct).
So solving the top layer gives you one side completely solved (including the edges!) When you look at it from the top you should see 9 squares of the same colour, when you look at the side you should see that the top row is of the same colour sqaures.
This isn't too hard, and you might want to try that for yourself
