Put a new chain on and pedal around a bit is how I check it. I would assume you could see how much your current chain is stretched and make a guess though.
people will say the driving edge look like a hook or something , but I've had to replace 2 cassettes and neither one looked bad to me, or in one case the bike mechanic, but the new chain sure didn't agree with them.
edit: my opinion is a chain is a chain unless you're a weight dork or something.
