These are very hard to memorize unless you have worked on these before and learn from the experience. However, I found this very helpful table, but it's actually for Cisco Support. Not for Security+ exam. Anyone knows a good site with the similar table, but less Protocols? Thanks.

    Use a mnemonic to learn this, like:

    Please Do Not Throw Sausage Pizza Away

    Or in reverse:

    All People Seem To Need Data Processing

    That makes it easier to list the layers in order. Then you just have to learn the protocols. It worked for me!

    If you understand what each layer does then it’s actually not that difficult. I would look back at the explanations for each layer and then the protocols should make more sense.
