Cameron, my Tele 301 lecturer, told us how to memorize the OSI layers.
I don’t know whether he made this up himself or got it off the Internet, but here is how it goes:
“All people seem to need data”
All – Application layer
People – Presentation layer
Seem – Session layer
To – Transport layer
Need – Network layer
Data – Datalink layer
Processing – Physical layer
By the way, Cameron is one of the nicest lecturers I have ever met. He stayed behind in the lab during the holidays for us to catch up with the labs. He will answer any questions you throw at him…no matter how stupid it may sound. Best of all, he knows his stuff and he hangs around with the students, which is a rare thing to see for a lecturer.
Tele 301 exams are coming up, good luck everyone!
