Question regarding telling time?

In regards to telling what time it is. I find using " para las" to be difficult to remember. Por Ejemplo ( 2:55) Son cinco para las tres In other studies I have done in spanish I learned to say " Son las tres menos cinco" which seems so much easier to remember. Would it not be correct to use this phrase. Gracias Marcos

Hola Marcos. Yes, "Son las tres menos cinco" is also correct.
