Testing An Ignition Coil

Hey everyone I'm working on my 79 and lost all power driving home today. I replaced the dis cap and router thinking that was it but still wouldn't spark. So I'm thinking my ignition coil needs to be replaced but I was wondering if there a way to test it before I buy a new one. I have a volt meter but what do I need to have it set on or is thier another way?
