Rola -

Select the polygons that you want on the front face, hit the space bar to lock your selection temporarily, go into the view rotate mode (it's the button down at the bottom right of the interface - theres' also a shortcut for it which I don't at the moment remember), rotate the view to where you can see the backside polygons you want. Hit the spacebar to unlock the selection. Hold down the Control key and select the additional polygons you want. That should do it!
