Haha the app I use has a blue background and 2 dice on the icon (random number generator + by Alex Rutkowskij) - I have used a shuffled deck before, but this was nice since I always have my phone on me, and no need to carry another deck to practice.

I'll just use the app for my thought of number and a shuffled deck for my card. Thanks for the tip!

Use one random number as your stack number for the card and one number for the actual position. No need for a deck then!

30 is 5c. 30 is divisible by 5. I do the same thing with 25 being the 5d. 5 goes into 25 evenly.

I tried and find any little thing to help me remember. For example, 2 is a 2(h), 4 is the 3c (1 less than 4), 40 is a 4(s), 42 is also a 4(d), for 33, just add the 3's to get 6 and know its close to that (8c) and then for 44, 4+4=8, one away from 9(c). Any little thing you can do with the numbers to make it stick in your head. Even if its convoluted, it doesn't matter. The fact that you took the time to come up with some way to remember it at all helps to solidify it in your head. I had trouble with 17 and 19 for a while. I just knew one was a 9, and it wasnt the one with a 9 in it. Thus 17 is the 9h. 7 is 2 away from 9, so 19 is the 2d. It sounds convoluted but it helps. After a few days its just instant association though.

For those of you interested in practicing ACAAN, Ran Pink created a tool just for us:

http://www.worldwidemagic.com/acaan

With one click, it generates a random card and a random number.

Being a person who also has a hard time remembering I have found that if I repeat a single item 21 times in a row it sticks!
For those who believe, no explanation is necessary; for those who do not believe, no explanation will suffice.
