    I made a mistake on this post...

    Normal (Neutrophils)
    Monkeys (Monocytes)
    Like to (Lymphocytes)
    Eat (Eosinophils)
    Bananas (Basophils)

    one for where to put the leads for tele

    white on the right- snow over grass,
    fire over smoke, and
    chocolate over the heart

    if anyone that is a student has trouble remembering water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins one mnemomic is
    take your birth control with water--- vitamins b & c are water-soluble the rest are fat-soluble

    hope it helps if i can think of any more, i'll post them
    another good one is this:
    fat solubles (adek) = all dogs eat kibbles

    i like the birth control one! my a&p teacher taught us fat soluble with " a fat dek of cards"

    for the leads we learned clouds over grass, but the chocolate over the heart is one i've never heard before, it fits well...especially with the lady nurses, lol!
