    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    I'm 99% sure the bottom slot is slot 0 and the top slot is slot 1

    You can always find out for sure by yanking one of he modules and then open your System Profiler and click on "memory". The Profiler will identify the modules by type and bank location.

    Although "Yanking" may not be the right word to use

    The only process you need to worry about now is the process of elimination.

    Move the modules in and out as suggested and check your System Profiler to determine which is which. If you have a bad module, it'll show up.
