Learning is taking new information, committing it to memory, then being able to use it in different situations of life. It's not just memorization--(for example, you remember the mnemonic because it was cute & related to sex, but the names of the bones were memorized for the test, and then as Taz said, sent to the circular file.
But if you were truly interested in the bones of the hand, you'd probably look at several models or a cadaver, see how the bones are connected with tendons, ligaments, cartilage & muscle, and figure out how the arrangement of those bones creates the very impressive human hand. Then you would be able to name the bones because you actually learned them--not just memorized until no longer needed.
Learning is fun!
