    They come in enormous variety of packages. the only way to be sure is to snag a copy of the manufacturer's datasheet. In the datasheet you can find all of the package options and pinouts. Any other method is hit or miss and you're on your own. Right underneath the picture of the part is the key. Match the names to the picture.

    So im looking at the datasheet in the lonk I provided. Where does it tell me which is which? Under the picture of the MOSFET? Where it has G,D,S in that order? So does that mean they are in that order?

    In the case of the one you show it is GDS from left to right with the front facing you vertical with pins down.
