GOOG for instance. I know that it is in the NASDAQ market. But if I didn't know that how would I find out?

Well in this case you know Google is American company so must be NYSE or NASDAQ. As it is tecnology it is likely to be NASDAQ.
Otherwise if you look up the stock on Yahoo Finance it tells you!!
Otherwise most exchanges use a suffix. lile London is L So Amec is AMEC.L

Why do you care? If it's on a US exchange you can buy and sell it in the same way. I get tired of the philosophical and irrelevant technical questions on YA Investing that have nothing to do with real investing.

An easy way to check right off the bat would be to search the the company on google. I.e. to find out what stock exchange Facebook is on search "Facebook Stock" and google pulls up FB - Facebook Inc (NASDAQ) and a chart
