Heater element testing

Terry - you recommend testing the element with a continuity tester. Just how do you do that? Should the electric be turned off? What do you touch with the probes?
Is there anyway to determing if the elements are bad or the thermostat(s) could be bad or is this a trial and error thing with the elements?
The way you sounded, the chances are that the element(s) is the culprit for lack of hot water.
