Hi, Amolpalekar.

As far I know, the best way to remember is practice them. Observe them, how they are working. Test them with different inputs.

Try to see that http specific methods you will find in HttpServlet,, HttpServletRequest, HttpResponse. Similarly Servlet related you will find in other two interfaces.

Apart from this there are methods which will you find in Request, Session and Context scopes so they will be common to all three.

And yes practice will make you more clear in these concepts.

There is not need to 'memorize' them as such. As you keep working with them the the important methods just stick to your head.
