Remembering the Resistor Color Code
Unless one is blessed with a photographic memory (I have heard of having one described as a curse) it takes time to learn/memorize the resistor color code. A trick many students use to assist in learning the code, is to assign the first letter of each color in the code to words that can be placed in a sentence in the same order they appear in the code.
Examples of these sentences follow:
Better Be Ready Or Your Great Big Venture Goes Wrong
Bad Beer Rots Our Young Guts But Vodka Goes Well
These sentences do not account for the tolerance band.
If you know of other acronyms that assist in the goal of learning electronics, please send them so I can add them to this list. Use the following form and I will give you credit for your contribution.
