    Make yourself flash cards corresponding to the belt color and memorize if you enjoy wasting your personal time for no gain.

    Number/Color association. If your talking primary sort, for example if you have, let's say 93201 going to black belt, Marcus Allen wore 32 for the raiders. 32 Black jersey. It could be sports,music,entertainment, whatever you relate to. Flash Cards are huge. Have someone test you with them. Don't do it yourself. The retention is better when there shown to you.

    This is what I use. I associate everything with the jersey numbers worn by players on my favorite baseball team over the last 25 years. I once boggled my OCS's mind once when I was able to remember an entire 16 digit tracking number after looking at it for about 5 seconds.

    I'll tell you what I did... I didn't go by states, I went by zips. So, I made a list 0 - 1000. For example:

    0-127 is yellow belt
    128-178 is blue belt
    179-200 is yellow
    201 is blue
    It gets a little tricky when you have to incorporate 3 and 2 days into the list, but it is much easier than the :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: list they give you.
