    From the TTT, I learned this cool mnemonic "I Eat Three Eggs In Virginia Daily"
    1. Identify the problem
    2. Establish a theory
    3. Test the theory
    4. Establish plan of action
    5. Implement the solution
    6. Verify full system functionality
    7. Document the findings
    Thanks to LarryG for sharing!
    I'll probably change Virginia to Victoria, for my end. haha!

    What other mnemonics do you use in your class?

    The eggs one for troubleshooting steps is a good one. There are actually a number for OSI. One of our students came up with this one:

    Please (physical)
    Do (data link)
    Not (network)
    Teach (transport)
    Students (session)
    Pointless (presentation)
    Acronyms (application)

    :D

    Well, there's this one that I just threw together off the cuff for the syslog debug levels, which also comes with an implicit bit of wisdom.

    (Debug) Dude,
    (Information) Investigate (the)
    (Notification) Nonsense
    (Warning) Warning

    'cuz

    (Error) Errors
    (Critical) Can
    (Alert) Annoy
    (Emergency) Everyone

    This is one that I really need as it ain't easy for the students to remember the debug levels (0-7)
    I usually just tell the students that for card games, "eh, [it's] ace [that] we need" -> referring to E A C E W N I D
    it ain't a good mnemonic, i know. LOL

    Here's another for helping your students remember the different backup types...
    Everyone has heard of the FBI, well substitute the "B" with a "D", so now its "FDI" (Full, Differential, & Incremental)
    You can also use it to explain which is the longest to either execute a "Backup" (going from left to right) or for the complexity of a "Restore" (going from right to left).
    Hope this may help someone.
