Determine the Hand Of A Door

I want to order a new prehung door. How do I tell if I need a left-hand or right hand door?

Ah, all your questions should be this easy!  Visualize yourself walking through the door. If the door will swing outward to the left, then it is a left-hand door. If it swings out to the right, it is a right-hand door.
