    Just compare the difference in electronegativity of the two elements. If the difference is greater than ~1.7, it's ionic. Look up periodic tables and electroneagativity on Google. If you have a chem book, it's in there too.

    ionic is typically metal+nonmental so left side of periodic table + right side of periodic table (elements)
