Determining the order of the reaction

Are there other ways to determine the order of the reaction other than plotting to see which leads to a straight line?

Re: Determining the order of the reaction

Another ways will involve a table listing initial reactant concentration and reaction rate. Order of a reaction can also be determined when knowing the mechanism of the reaction and the slowest step in the reaction.
