If a reaction is first-order, it will increase proportionally with the concentration of the reagent. If the reaction is second-order, it will increase 4-fold when the reagent concentration is doubled. There's no real need to memorize them - you can tell based off the superscript (n) on the rate laws if they're given. If the problem doesn't give you the entire rate law, there's usually a way to determine the order.
We are tested on everything up to page 73 in the course reader. This page ends with "Pre-equilibrium approach".
