First you need to study a minimal amount (don't worry, no actual intelligence involved).

A good place to start is here:

Now just learn the camera relative ratings by heart.

You're done.

This also has the advantage that when someone asks you "What do you think of this picture?", you don't need to look at that ambiguous mess of colour, but just need to check the EXIF for camera model, lens used etc, to know if it's any good.
