The way i solve it is;
-third layer, get corners ito their right spot
-third layer, rotate corners so that they are completely correct
-third layer , sides until one is correct
-third layer, permutate the three remaining edges until they are correct.
I used to solve it using the following method. It's probably not the most efficient in terms of number of moves but it doesn't involve having to remember too many "set moves" - you can solve it by thinking about where you want the pieces to end up.
First layer edges
3 of the first layer corners
Use the incorrect corner as a sort of "gateway" whereby 3 three of the middle layer edges can be put in place.
Use the incorrect corner and edge to get the 4 third layer edges correct (this requires a bit of thought - but not as much as playing chess say)
The remaining middle edge will "magically" be correct too
There will now be 5 corners left to do (fewer if you're lucky)
Corners are far easier to get right than edges and, with a bit of thinking, you can put them in place and orient them correctly at the same time.
Not the quickest I admit, but doesn't involve having to memorize move sequences and is strangely satisfying when things "fall into place".
