    I just read through the revision guide over and over again. Kinda like doing your timetables.

    Mitochondria-the powerhouse of the cell.

    Golgi apartaus-fluid filled sacs that modify lipids and proteins

    Cytoplasm-the outer shell of the cell-controls substances.

    Nucleus-In charge of cell growth and devision, its the brain of the cell and controls DNA and chromosomes

    I actually tested myself on these and this is all i remember, i know, its way too short.

    P.s. Use flash cards or do a big poster on them with colourful pictures if you are creative

    Mitochondrial motor - powerhouse of the cell
    Nuclear nucleus - center of the cell/controls cell activity via mRNA trancription
    Reading ribosome - reads mRNA and creates a story/protein
    Rough endoplasmic reticulum - R is for ribosome. Ribosomes produce proteins here to move to the Golgi body. Another mnemonic is Rough Exit Road
    Go go Golgi body (think Inspector Gadget) - modification and export of cell surface/secretory proteins
    Vacant vacuole - not so vacant. Storage of nutrients
    Flinging/flailing flagella - whiplike structure which is capable of moving a cell
    I can't remember my mnemonic for SER. Smooth/Steroid ER?

    Another Mnemonic:
    Nigel Can Cook Mouthwatering Fries Like Chef Christof Candou

    Nucleus
    Cell Membrane
    Cytoplasm
    Mitochondria
    Flagella
    Lysosome
    Centriole
    Chloroplast
    Cilia

    label a colourful cell and write the basic functions next to each organelle
    it's easier to remember when you have a visual to go back to!

    and hopefully this way each organelle that you remember will help to trigger memory of other organelles.
