The AE (not II) prism displays the metered shutter speed in the eyepiece using red-LED numbers on the left when you half-press the shutter. The metering is much more basic than in any modern 35mm SLR (no honeycombs or evaluative metering or whatever): you get to choose average/center-weighted/spot and an exposure-compensation factor and it tells you what the shutter speed will be.
There is only Aperture Priority because that's directly selected by the ring on the lens with no control from the camera. That might differ on the II but I doubt it.
