Print it first. Sometimes I look at the neg and think "Crap, messed up exposure or developing" but once I try a print, it's brilliant. Acros and Pyrocat, to me, seems very forgiving, and what I mean is that you don't have to be perfect to get a workable negative. I've been using no meter now for a while and getting excellent images.
