So most of us are well into the revision zone by now - but what helps you revise?I find mnemonics are a great way to remember a list, or order of something - and the funnier the better!
For example:
The Nitration Of Benzene
Have Sex On Hob Nobs! Ohh lala! = HSO HNO = H2SO4 HNO3
C6H6 + HNO3 --> (H2SO4) --> C6H5NO2
OR
Diva King Pulls Cock so Obvious Fails at Gay Sex
= DKPCOFGS
D
Domain / K = Kingdom / P = Phylum / C = Class
O = Order / F = Family / G = Genus / S = Species

So, what mnemonics have you come up with to help you revise?

Mnemonics suck, I want the information I have learnt to be available on demand! I don't want to have to jump through a dozen hoops to get it!

There's the standard rude one for memorising the 12 Cranial Nerves, for anyone doing neuroanatomy or the like.

Oh, Oh, Oh, To Touch And Feel (a) Virgin Girl's Vagina, Ah, Heaven!

I - Olfactory, II - Optic, III - Oculomotor, IV-Trochlear, V-Trigeminal, VI-Abducens, VII-Facial, VIII-Vestibulocochlear, IX-Glossopharyngeal, X-Vagus, XI-Accessory, XII-Hypoglossal

Doesn't help with their site of innervation/where they leave the skull, but it's a step in the right direction.

Have been using these recently to revise for my grammar exam.
I have 2:

Thematic Roles:
All Pear Trees Experience Green Branches Sometimes I Love Poo (stupid I know)

agent, patient, experiencer, goal, benefactive, source, instrument, locative, proposition.

And this one is for the seven types of pronoun:

Glowing Pokemon Reflect Red Demonic Relationships Innit (again ridiculous)

general, possessive, reflexive, reciprocal, demonstrative, relative, interrogative.

Haha, I've always loved this one, although its slightly different to the one I know! Also there's:

Some Say Money Matters, But My Brother Says Big Boobs Matter More.

To know whether the cranial nerves are sensory, motor, or both
(i.e. Some = cranial nerve I is sensory)

Hmm that one's better than the one I learnt - had something to do with hymens in it. As for its usefulness, everyone just says 1st nerve, 5th nerve etc. all the time. It's helpful if you can convert between the two!

Haven't needed these for a couple of years but my one for taxonomic groups was Kinky People Can Often Find Great Sex - Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Genus, Species. For the stages of mitosis (Internet) Porn Makes Aroused Teenagers (***) - (Interphase), Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase (Cytokinesis).

The Food - Testing Rap XD

For starch, add iodine,
It’ll go blue-black not red or green,
Reducing sugars, add Benedict’s
It’ll change from blue to red-as-bricks.
If Benedicts don’t make those sugars change,
Add HCl and try again!
Cool it and add Na2CO3,
Test it one more time and say what you see.
For proteins, simply add Biurets,
It’ll turn lilcal but don’t forget,
Using ethanol is the lipid test
Cloudy white is right, now rest.
