Thanks ZOG couldn't recall the last part.
I thought I was using the pc version, the one I learned started with black ... later was told it was racist and we needed to change to bob brown still getting the black/ brown in proper order.

Just in passing, if you work with these for any length of time, you get to recognise the values without having to work out what the colour values are.
At a glance you can tell if it is 3.3kΩ or 33kΩ.
It also helps that there a limited number of values. We generally used the E12 series. Twelve values and decade multiples thereof.

5. The multiplier is easy to remember how to implement if you think about the third band being the quantity of zeros that follow the first two digits.

Gold and silver are tolerances gold is 5% tolerance, silver is 10% tolerance and no band is 20% tolerance.
That is the one I learned when in college. And though I don't find it to be all that offensive, that is probably the dirtiest phrase I ever heard come out of that particular instructor's mouth.

They will delete the phrase I learned to remember the trigonometry functions if I posted that - but a lot of dirty stuff came out of that instructor's mouth - made things easy to remember though

Sin is always an issue, and references to a tan gent get interesting too.
