Under the vehicle, the manifold connects to a "head pipe", and the head pipe connects to a device that just looks like a mufler, but it's not. That's the catalytic converter.

How do you tell if the oxygen sensor is before or after the Cadillac converter in a 89 Honda prelude?

There IS an oxygen sensor BEFORE the catalytic converter and that's the one that typically needs to be replaced. Not all vehicles have a second oxygen sensor after the catalytic converter and of those that do, it almost requires physical damage to the vehicle to damage the rear sensor. The front oxygen sensor screws into the exhaust manifold, typically right where the exhaust comes together into a single pipe. It will be a screw in device that looks similar to a spark plug and it should have 2 or more wires out the top. If you crawl under the car and look you will know for sure.

Why might an '89 Honda Civic fail an emissions test 3 times because of high readings on idling after changing the O2 sensor and catalytic converter?

Depends on which of the readings failed. Was it CO (carbon monoxide), HC (hydrocarbons), NOx (nitrous of oxides), or a combination of them?

Where are the oxygen sensors located on a 89 formula firebird?

The O2 sensor is on the drivers side exhaust manifold. When all four exhaust pipes come together from the manifold that area is called the collector. The O2 sensor should be right there. If your looking for this and you get to the catalytic converter you have gone too far.
