The trick is to move the notes around in your head so they make a close-spaced chord -- root position, with just thirds stacked up. It *is* tricky to see at first glance when the notes are spaced out, and you can't even trust that the root will be in the bass!

With more practice, you'll start to just "recognize" the chords in their inversions (and some combinations are more common than others - and the doubled note is often a clue), but for now you can help yourself out with a pencil -- just scribble down the notes (for example A Eb C F), then figure out the order that makes stacks of thirds (A C Eb F? no... drop the F below... F A C Eb).

Then you'll know what you're dealing with.
