Remember that cos^-1x is the inverse of cosx.

So if cosx has points like (0,1) and (pi/2,0) then the inverse will have the points (1,0) and (0,pi/2) etc.

Another method is to just use that and remember the shapes of arcsin, arccos and arctan.

It might work if you think about the key points of the cos graph, hence find the key points of cos^-1(x) and then use bits inbetween to judge the shape of the graph if you can't remember it.

if all else fails, look at the graphs of them and sketch them on your paper the minute you start. You can do that in any exam with anything that you'll know you'll otherwise forget
