Default Honda shifting gears help?

I have a 93 honda civic . And I know how to shift gears but not so good , It's a 120 mph , But I don't have an rpm meter so it makes it hard . It only has the speed meter and I was wondering what speeds to shift gears ?

You can always tell when you need to shift by the sound of the engine. The car is going to go at a different speed and still be at a specific RPM whether you're going uphill or downhill. If the engine sounds like it's working hard and if you're slowing down/not getting up to speed, then you need to shift. If you're on a city street, probably second or third gear is best, but on a highway/freeway, definately 4th or 5th

I highly recommend going to an auto parts store and buying a tachometer, knowing your engine RPM is crucial because you can risk damaging your engine and transmission if you're not careful. The redline on a tach is there for a reason!
