Please help! Journals and Suspense accounts!

Hi Everyone!

I have my exam coming up in June and I really starting to panic about journals and suspense accounts. I understand why they are used but is there an easy way to know when to debit or credit each account? I've tried the whole debit gain and credit loss thing but it's making me more confused! :001_unsure:
I would really appreciate any advice or tips.
