How do you test a ignition module on 1992 Honda civic?

Many autopart stores have a machine to test it. The machines use a universal adapter to hook into the ignition control module. The ignition control module is in the distributor. If you mean the part that contains the ignition coil, when mine went bad I probed it with an ohmeter and then asked the parts store if I could test the resistances in a new coil before I bought it. Since the resistances of certain terminals weren't even close, I knew I had a bad coil.

How do you put on a ignition coil 1974 vw beetle?

The coil fits in the coil bracket, which is normally on the fan shroud. Take the old coil off the car and set it down with the wiring pointed up. You will see two bolts coming out of the coil, one with a + and one with a -. The + bolt should have a metal piece with a place to hook three push-on connectors; the - bolt should have a metal piece you can hook two push-on connectors to. So the drill is, move all the wiring that's on the + side from the old coil to the new one, move all the wiring from the - side of the old coil to the - side of the new one, move the center wire from old coil to new, put the coil bracket on the new coil, bolt the coil onto the fan shroud and you're done. It'll take ten minutes at most.
