Default Brachial plexus

Ok, I gotta quick question. I've been researching this for a couple of hours and can't find my answer so hopefully some of you can help explain.

How do you follow the branches of the brachial plexus down to the individual nerves. For example, by just looking at a drawn brachial plexus, how can you know that the radial nerve is derived from C5-C8? I know how to draw it, but I just don't know how to interpret it and tell the spinal derivations of each nerve.
