the terminals are normally marked common (com) black lead (ohm) for resistance checks red lead and v.amp. for voltage and current red lead hope this helps

SOURCE: MULTIMETER USAGE
Is this an Auto-ranging multimeter or does it have several range settings such as 2V, 20V, 200V, 750V, etc.?
If it is an auto-ranging, you will have 2 voltage selections: AC (alternating current) which will have a sine wave similar to this: ~, or DC (direct current) which will have a symbol similar to this: =. AC is mainly used to measure the voltage in your home or voltage to appliances, either 110V/120V or 220V/240V. DC is used to measure voltages such as in electronic assemblies, computers, etc.
You need to know whether you are measuring AC or DC to get an accurate reading. You also need to make sure you have the meter on a high enough range if it is not an auto-ranging meter. The best thing to do is start on a high range and work down, although most meters have an overload protection.
To measure current you must "open the circuit" and place the meter leads in the circuit. This should only be done if you are very familiar using the meter. Current is measured in Amps (A), milliamps (mA), or microamps (uA). There is little use for the common person to measure current.
Not sure what you are going to use it for. Computer power supply, perhaps?
There are some tutorials on youtube that may be beneficial. Here's one:

You can do a search once there for others. Just insert "multimeter" in the Search box.

you just turn the switch to "V'' and it should be DC voltage.... then connect probes of multi meter to both terminals of battery and you will get to know about its voltage...
