What determines whether a step in a reaction is reversible?

What makes a step in a reaction not reversible? I'm learning all these mechanisms and having to memorize which steps are reversible. Is there a way to figure out whether it's reversible or not?

I should also add: your professor might talk about this in class, but they might be more lenient when actually grading exams. Unless you go to an extremely difficult school.
