Good on you for remembering that many! I never set out to learn them but by the time I had finished researching I knew all the amino acids by full, 3 letter and one letter names plus all the structures. Never was particularly useful but it was a nice party trick 🙂
I wonder if you ask this question because you think that scientists need to remember these sorts of things.
As you work with the different areas of science, you will remember a lot of this sort of stuff, it just sticks with you. So if you are a chemist or micrbiologist, you will get used to periodic table names. If you work with animals you get used to using scientific names. But do not worry about it.
You do not have to do a test to show you can remember any of it. When working as a scientist you just look it up if you cannot remember it.
My wife brought a great book home for the family the other day, called “The Elements: A visual exploration of every known atom in the Universe”, by Theodore Gray. The introduction explains all about the periodic table and then every element is described in a couple of pages, with cool photographs. If you ever come across it, have a look. Very cool book. I’m reading an element a night.
I’ve heard of it too, but definitely can’t remember the whole song! Good on you if you can remember the whole thing! If anyone is interested in listening to it, you can see it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYW50F42ss8, although there are several other videos on YouTube (including one of Daniel Radcliffe from the Harry Potter movies singing it on a talk show!).
