What is a mnemonic device?
Mnemonics (pronounced “ne-mon’-ics”) assist the memory by using a system of rhymes, rules, phrases, diagrams, acronyms and other devices – all to help you learn, remember, and memorize names, dates, facts and figures.

BIV’ you can reproduce the order and colors of the rainbow.
