Two Buckets

You have two buckets. The first bucket can hold 3 gallons, and the second bucket can hold 5 gallons. You need exactly 4 gallons of water and you can only use these two buckets to measure it out. You cannot fill the buckets halfway or a quarter of the way because they are oddly shaped and it wouldn't be exact. How would you do it?

fill the 5 gallon bucket up. Pour 3 gallons into the other bucket. Empty the 3 gallon one. Pour the last 2 gaollons into the 3 gallon one. Fill the 5 gallon one again, and pour one gallon into the 3 gallon one.
