I remember most thing in biology through analogies.

This may sound wierd but in this case it was cops and robbers

I think of the foreign pathogen as a crimnals, phagocytes as the police, the lysoomes as the police car, and digestive enzymes (lytic acid) as the handcuffs/tazers that cripple the criminal.

Then i visualise them like they're in a movie. Exocytosis is a bit like dumpimg a criminal in jail on a island/ deporting them out side of the country (ie outside of the cell)

This type of thinking may only apply to visual learners....but i hope this has helped!!

I just broke each stage down and wrote out the key points. It is easier to learn this way.

Renaye I love your idea! I use analogies like that for some biological processes too.

Using analogies is the best way of learning processes, as long as you remeber not to write it that way in exams.
