I assume you have read it? Know the major themes of the book, and likely the passage will relate to one of those themes. Try to think of other places in the book where the same theme is addressed. I've not studied Frankenstein in a class, I read it for pleasure, so if you get better advice, take it! Mostly, I think Frankenstein is about the relationship between God and Man. Where Victor differs from God is that Victor is unprepared for the responsibility that he has toward his creation. The monster approaches him asking "why did you make me this way?" and demands "make me a wife." The Adam and Eve reference is obvious, but Victor responds in a selfish way and doesn't give the monster what he asks for. So the monster goes on periodic rampages against his maker, much as people do when the feel that God has let them down. Victor decides to destroy his creation, and the reference to Noah's flood or to Sodom and Gomorrah is obvious. Not being God, however, Victor is unable to accomplish his task, as the monster, gifted with the free will granted to us all, continually thwarts Victor's attempts. Sorry, didn't mean to ramble, but I LOVE this book!

Look up a synopsis of the novel. Research some main themes of the book (even if it's on Wikipedia). At least then, when you enter the exam, you'll know what the main ideas are, and you can incorporate them into your essay. There really is no other way to prepare. Just read a bit on the novel.. then while taking the test, spend about 10 minutes reading over the passage, underlining particular sentences and deciding on the points you want to focus on. I'm assuming you either were supposed to read this on your own.. or you covered it in class. Look over your notes. If you didn't read it.... know that you're not going to be able to get through English courses without reading the material (if your department is any good).
