Have you ever got confused with which of the Segment, Packet, Frame and Bit goes with Transport, Network, Data link and Physical layer?? Look no futher. Here'a little trick I came up with recently.

4.Transport______(S)egments
3.Network_______(P)ackets
2.Data Link______(F)rames
1.Physical_______(B)its

Take the first letters and put them in alphabetic order. icon_idea.gif
Thanks.

    Good tip.
    I don't claim to be an expert, but I sure would like to become one someday.

    That's how I remember
    copy run start
    
    The "r" is alphabetically before the "s".
    Seems pretty simple, really, but I always find myself double-checking to make sure I don't overwrite something important.
    Experience is a harsh teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.

    The nuggets say a similar way actually.

    think suncream:

    SPF 10 (the 10 meaning binary bits!)

    I tell the students to think of "copy rust" or "copy ru st" it seems to help

    if I say something that can be taken one of two ways and one of them offends, I usually mean the other one :-)
