Memorizing that isn't very difficult, no offense. Just read it and re-write it 10 times, and you'll have it.

The difficulty in memorizing varies from person to person, no offense. Some people are more visual, some are more aural. Some prefers diagrams and flash cards, others use phonetic devices. And memorizing certainly isn't for everyone.
I use a pneumonic device for memorizing geological time periods, eras, epochs.
