Mnemonics

Greek: mnēmonikós - of, relating to memory

"A device, such as a verse or formula or rhyme, used as an aid in remembering concepts. Named for Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory in Greek mythology, mnemonics are also called memoria technica. The principle is to create in the mind an artificial structure that incorporate unfamiliar ideas or, especially, a series of dissociated ideas by themselves are difficult to remember. Ideally, the structure is designed so that its parts are mutually suggestive."

Mnemonic device

"Goodness Gracious, Father Franklin Did Go By Picking Pumpkins (to) Prepare Pies"

Explanation

Glycolysis steps:
Glucose
Glucose-6-phosphate
Fructose-6-phosphate
Fructose-1,6-bisphosphate
Dihydroxyacetone-Phosphate
Glyceraldehyde-Phosphate
1,3-Biphosphoglycerate
3-Phosphoglycerate
2-Phosphoglycerate (to)
Phosphoenolpyruvate [PEP]
Pyruvate
'Did', 'By' and 'Pies' tell you the first part of those three: di-, bi-, and py-.
'PrEPare' tells location of PEP in the process.
