Tips for learning/remembering CPUs and their sockets?

Hi guys,

I'm basically all done and dusted with my A+ study, in preparation for my exams. The one thing I have been consistently having trouble with is remember which CPUs go with which socket, no matter how much time I spend trying to make it stick (Over a month now and I'm still missing bits).

I'm wondering if anyone has found any kind of learning or memory tool that will help such as Mnemonics etc?

Cheers for your time!

    I am also studying for my A+ and also having issues with remembering the sockets and ports.

    While studying for my A+, I had issues remembering CPU with sockets, RAM, and connections with their speed. What I did to drill those into my brain is create a VCE file for that information. It may be silly, but you may be surprised how effective it can be. I have created "drag and drops" or "point to point" with VCE designer and then tested myself with VCE manager. Most people use flashcards or writing down stuff countless times to remember such details. I've designed VCEs to make it easier for me to retain certification topics, school studies (like biology terms), and friends' birthdays.
