Forming an acronym is a good strategy to use to remember information in any order that can be remembered. An acronym is a word that is formed from the first letter of each fact to be remembered. It can be a real word or a nonsense word you are able to pronounce.
Here is how to form an acronym.
Write the facts you need to remember.
Underline the first letter of each fact. If there is more than one word in a fact, underline the first letter of only the first word in the fact.
Arrange the underlined letters to form an acronym that is a real word or a nonsense word you can pronounce.

“Telk” is an acronym that can be used to remember the following animals: tiger, lion, elephant, kangaroo. “Telk” is not a real word, but you can easily pronounce it.
