It is conventional to put the anode on the left and the cathode on the right. That being said it would be smart to double-check that this is true in a problem or on a test (if possible) by seeing which is being reduced and which is being oxidized.
Dr. Lavelle mentioned that this is the common arrangement, but it should be possible to tell based on other information given which one is the anode and which is the cathode. I wouldn't rely on it always being in this arrangement, though.
