I need to be able to memorize several formulas for a test next week

I'm taking a numerical methods class and there are all these discretization schemes of partial differential equations named after pairs of dudes and they all are kinda the same, maybe a bit different in indexes.... I'm trying to organize it all in my head, like a frat house, with the dudes that worked on the same scheme being roommates, but it seems to be taking a long time to actually "find" a place for each scheme in their "rooms" and keeping it there in a sort of visual arrangement. Test is no books no notes, and everything kinda of just jumbles inside my head right now.

But is there a foolproof method of holding them or something to get them to drink from it? I can usually get them to drink, but only about half of the amount recommended. More details inside.

YTD total based on sum of last number in another row that has a value?

YTD total based on sum of last number in another row that has a value? I need to sum up the values in one row based on the matching row below it. For example, if I have a target of $1000 a month, and I only have actual revenue numbers through June, I would like to calculate the year to date for the target from Jan to June. Once July numbers are put in, I'd want the YTD for the target to update to Jan to Jul. I have tried a couple of variations on COUNT, INDEX and OFFSET. Example is here: http://malcommc.com/ytd.xls I am using Excel 2003
