My a&p instructor always told us that if you want to remember something, make it personal or make it dirty. To remember the cranial nerves and if they are sensory, motor or both, my instructor told us his way of remembering...
I-s, II-s, III-m, IV-m, V-b, VI-m, VII-b, VIII-s, IX-b, X-b, XI-m, XII-m
Some salesman make money, but my brother says big boobs make more.
I'll never forget that now. Just go through and somehow make it personal or silly like that one or dirty. My friends and I made up a really bad one that can't be printed but I'll never forget exactly what each cranial nerve is called and with that one above, I know what they do.
