acidic vs. basic vs. amphoteric

Hi all!
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions/easy ways of deciding if an oxide is acidic, basic, or amphoteric.
Thanks!

Acidic oxides are the oxides of non-metals. Basic oxides are the oxides of metals.

My TA said to just memorize the amphoteric metal oxides to make your life easier.
