For me it's jsut a case of memorizing them. maybe you can associate the numbers with number you already know? Good luck anyways

I memorized the set of values in order from lowest to highest. This was the only technique I could think of. Memorizing numbers bites, I usually just have to drill them into my head over and over. :)

Memorization worked best for me too, and the more you use them, the easier they are to remember

I made myself lil tests.. where I would have the lab, and then I filled out the value.. I did it OVER and OVER until I could spit them out.. It worked for me :)
