As far as I know, there is no way except to learn each verb's conjugation when studying the verb.

Hi Joe,

If I may recommend a little inexpensive book of French verb conjugation called Bescherelle (Hatier).

I have an old version called  'La conjugaison 12000 verbes' which is a very useful companion when you have a little doubt. It also group together verbs which are conjugated in the same manner which is very useful. 

Most French school students have one proving that it is not easy for them either...

Or, as a complement, you use this website to check the conjugation of verbs:
