I don't think there is exactly an easy way of doing it, just follow the steps and you should be fine every time
1. Make sure you have a correctly balanced equation which shows you the molar ratios of the reactants.
2. calculate the number of moles of the substance you know more about ( you will be given the volume and concentration of one of the substances and just the volume of the second)
3. Once you have the number of moles, go back to you BALANCED equation and compare the ratios, this then allows you to work out the number of moles of unknown substance (if ratio is 1:1 no calculation needed!)
4. you should now have number of moles and a given volume of your second substance. Calculate this concentration by c=n/V
1. balance equation
2. calculate moles of one you know n=cxV
3. work out moles of second (ratio)
4. calculate unknown concentration c=n/V
Hope this helps! Do some practice questions and you'll get the hang of it in no time!
