remembering the stats table

i have a tough time remembering stuff like the stats table tests. does anyone have like a mnemonic or acronym or just another way of remembering it?
I've found the easiest way to remember it is just repeating this over and over, making it into a rhythm I can simply memorise:
chi, si, chi.
man, wil, sp.
un, re, pe.
Rather than a mnemonic that requires cramming more info into my brain, I find this 'rhythm' works quite well as then I just need to format it into the table on the exam paper and choose whichever one I need.
I just remember that data always goes from nominal then ordinal then interval (NOI) and the column on the right is correlational whereas the other 2 are tests of difference.
I've realised this isn't actually that helpful - sorry, lol. But I have found that making it into a rhythm and repeating it until it commits to memory has worked for me!
