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.

Help me pass my library shelver test

I'm looking to get work as a library shelver in a county library. I've passed the minimum requirements and have moved onto the next phase- basically- the library shelver test. I have no idea what this test will require other than them handing me a stack of books and telling me to go shelve them properly. Besides being versed in the Dewey Decimal System.... what do I need to know to pass this test and not have anxiety about it going in? I realize every library system is different but I would very much like your input. [more inside]

data acquisition for a small sized test lab

in my previous job i worked with an emerson data acquisition and control system that was completely integrated and customisable. all facility control and data gathering was from the same software, with a customised faceplate gui. i am now at a new job that is using stand alone data takers with 30m long cables to get data. it is unstable and prone to interference and limited amount of data channels, plus no discrete outputs. is there an ideal mid strength solution, that wouldn't cost the same as the emerson system, but would be more robust and effective than a datataker?
