I have been using the mnemonic VIP MALT pH glycine to remember the non-polar or hydrophobic amino acids. VIP MALT ph glycine came from examkrackers and Ive also seen GAVLIMP (or something similar, dont know where the trytophan went on that one) used as well on other websites. Kaplan has methionine listed as a polar amino acid, which it sure as hell looks like with a carboxylic acid and amine group. Whats the deal? Thanks!
