Something a bit fun - OSI & Encapsulation Pneumonics

Here are a couple of handy Pneumonics for remembering what order the OSI model layers and Data Encapsulation come in. Might not help you but it has helped me have these stick in my head icon_lol.gif :

OSI

Please do not throw sausage pizza away:

away - Application
pizza - Presentation
sausage - Session
throw - Transport
not - Network
do - Data Link
Please - Physical

Encapsulation
Dirty sick people feel bad

Data - Dirty - Application, Presentation, Session layers
Segments - Sick - Transport layer
Packets - People - Network layer
Frames - Feel - Data Link layer
Bits - Bad - Physical Layer

    ok bear with me :)

    i learnt the osi one by making this one up

    poor
    daddy
    never
    told
    santa to
    prep
    artillery

    and for the tcp one

    naughty
    indians
    travel
    alone

    and the encapsulation i just remember where the data is for and the rest is easy.

    Bits has the leasnt letters in followed by frames, packets and segments.

    And remember, the best way to learn the OSI model is to 'understand' it. Once you know how it works, and what the layers do, it will fall into place (order) without mnemonics. Anyway, it's always fun to see what people come up with. To me it seems it's often more difficult to remember the mnemonic than the thing you are actually trying to learn.

    I found that remembering which order they came in helped understand the processes as it was more logical as I was learning what each layer does.

    Hey as I say it may not stick with everyone but it did for me....

    Maybe I should have looked up how to spell mnemonic first though icon_redface.gif ........oh well! icon_lol.gif

    Haha they are terrible...but hey if they worked :p

    Mine was the boring "all people seem to need data processiong" and for tcp/ip "ants travel in numbers"

    Great! I just finished writing it down. Ok, I admit it - I'm a newbie. So I need all the help I can get. Thanks.
