look around at someone smart, and connect it how they do it

nah seriously, the wires are usually colour marked, so black goes to black and red to red etc.

use d.c, connect voltage in parallel, ammeter in series. If you get a -ve current/voltage then you know you've connected it up wrong.

Your perfectly allowed to look around, though they may frown on it depending on where you are. The simplest way is to start from the positive terminal and connect as you go round the circuit on the paper.
