We're going to be testing soon on the elements of the Periodic Table and I need an easy way to remember them. Please help!

you could just make a video diary or make a memoir. A memoir could help you remember many things.

Watch Daniel, "Harry Potter" Sing them. There are only a few extra he did not mention and those should be easy to remember. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rSAaiYKF0cs

Learn them by rote, or in a song if it helps you (although that could be annoying in an exam if you suddenly start singing)

I usually make funny quotes or characters for the elements. Like for silver (Ag), I'd say something like - i know its corny - "Ay gee! Gimme back my silver!" and for something like actinium (AC), my friend copied the commercial for Activia. It actually works very efficiently.
