Its 10.25 pm as per my watch and instead of sleeping I am busy doing my DSP problems.Yesterday our Viva timetable were out and I was shocked as our orals were starting from November 3.Now ,I guess I have to open my books else I am going to flunk this sem atleast in one paper.If my books had life ,then I am sure that it would have cried loud.
"Common !! ,this guys having his exams and he hasn't started his studies...some one save him please," that would be my books reaction.Jokes apart,I feel strange blogging at this time especially late night.My roll number is 71 and the orals for our batch starts from 65 onwards.Now ,I am confused and nervous coz I have to work hard in order to get good marks.I have been used to such situations before and now I am well accustomed to it.

I am writing this post to let my readers know all the tricks and mnemonics I used when I was in my junior college levels and recent years of Engineering.I bet it would be interesting.Many of you'll must be knowing it,especially mumbai students.
I was a Bio student and studying human organ is one of the most irritating thing to do in your life.One has to remember names like Islet of Langerhans,Pattela and so on.We had some thing called carpel bones in our 12th class.Its basically the wrist bones which are 8 in numbers.Our Arif sir tried to teach us and help us remember the bones.

She Looks Too Pretty Try To Chase Her

When our sir used to say this statement we all used to ask "Who sir ,who?" :P

Now ,here is the details of the above statement.
S - > Scaphoid
L -> Lunate
T -> Triquetrum
P -> Pisiform
T -> Trapezium
T -> Trapezoid
C ->Capitate
H -> Hamate

Isn't that amazing!!
Now lets switch to Physics and Electronics.
So every one must be knowing Ohms law.I should say that we had to scrubb our asses hard to remember the statement as we were just 14 then.
here is the formula of Ohm's Law.

v= voltage,R =resistance,I = electric current

My way of remembering this was . "We are Indians(VRI)"

Every one must be aware of Mendeleefs periodic table .. I mean Modern periodic table.
The 7A group is called the group of Halides.The simplest way of remembering the compounds of the 7A group is
For Classes Bring ID
First Class Biryani Item

Its as simple as remembering Fluorine,Chlorine ,Bromine and Iodine.
Now lets see what I have in Network Systems.

Our sir taught us the easiest way to remember all network layers of the OSO model.

It was Please
Please Do Not Trust (Travelling) Sales Person Always

Its for Physical Layer,Datalink layer,network layer,transport layer,session layer,presentation layer and application layer.I hope that was a good mnemonic ..

I had some different method to remember register color codes.
B B Roy Of GReat Britain had a Very Good Wife
It is used to represent different colors in a register and values are given according to the color positions.The different colors are blue,black,green,red,white,orange and so on

I also had ways to remember values of PI, root of 2 and root of 3

root of 2 = ek ka char ,ek ka char (1.4141)
root of 3 = ek saath teen ne do ko mara (1.732).

I some how feel that ,lazy people do such things to remember formulae's and codes.I found it useful as well.But this doesn't means that I am lazy.

I am feeling sleepy right now, please some one get me a cup of coffee, please :p

So,what mnemonics do you used when you were studying?

PS: Campus Files 3 will be updated soon, guess what the idea was :p


  1. nice ste....i also remembr some of that b b roy......physics book mein hota tha..
    ek ka char was funny!!

  2. i still use the bb roy.. hehe somebody asks me to get them a resistor.. well thts wht i do.. hehe run it through my mind..

    hehe there were loads like this that we formed.. cant remember though.. oh good old days.. hehe have fun with the DSP :)

  3. heyyy Stephen!!
    tas was cooll and cute and funny!!!!:):))

  4. Best of luck...liked all your acronyms but honestly the subject matter is greek to me :)

  5. wuts bb roy?

    I love Biryani lol!

    d u chase only pretty chicks? wut abt brainy chicks? :)


  6. lollzz.Yeah Class and Tution Prof's always give such Mnemonics.I remember our C.N ka Sir saying
    Plzz Do Not Throw Pizza Away for Physical Layer Transport Layer etc :P
    btw how do you still remember ur 12'th ka Mnemonics...Main toh bhul bhi gayaa :D
    And Best of luck for your Viva dude ..I know you will do well... :)

  7. btw dsp ke liye koi Mnemonics hain kya ....??

  8. at diiii

    bb roy is in physics for register color codes

  9. @ ani

    dsp went fine....yes we tend to forget it but we wont

  10. ceedy

    haha its nt greek or french to me.....ppl use various short forms to remember things.....its taught by coaching class profs

  11. keshii

    yes brainy and pretty chicks both r chased lol

  12. anurag

    lol cant forget things easily

  14. aik sath ten nay do ko mara was funniest :D

    had coupla mine too:

    group I-A, HaLi Nay Ki Rab Se Faryaad for hydrogen, Sodium, Potasium, Robidium, Cesium and Francium.

    for group III-A: BalGa in Thiland :D for Boron, Aluminium, Gallium, Indiun and T for something i dont rem... Throbuium or like.

    I got confused with dynes and newton equivalence so teacher taught us this: Aik Newton 5 Dynoun ke baraber, (Dynes as in Witches)

    1 N = 10 ^ 5 Dynes :P

    and the like, we also have a statement for physical link, data link and all, forgotten already :P

    But yes, amazing stuff :)

  15. ne had their own way of remembering things dont they ....

    ur mnemonics were good tooo

  16. heehhehhe..thats nice way of remebering formulaes n stuffs ..bdw itna tuff bhi nahi hai yaar !!! bt shayad tumne apna brain likhne ke liye save kiya , taki formula padhne main jyada kharch na ho !! :P;)
