Most people don't realise that doors are left-handed or right-handed. The differentiation is important only when you are purchasing a new door to install. When you purchase a new door from a hardware or home improvement store, it is typically already pre-drilled with the proper lock and knob holes. Some doors are drilled for left-handed installations and some for right-handed installations. Thus, it's important to understand which you need so that you will purchase the correct one.

Look at the side of the door and locate the hinges that hold it to the door jamb. If the hinges are on the let side of the door, then the door is a left-handed door. If the hinges are on the right side of the door, then it is a right-handed door.
