I always come back to LaND = Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy to remember the order of the last 3 books of the 5 Books of Moses. Genesis, then Exodus are hard to misplace. Leviticus itemizes all the rules/laws, Numbers spends a lot of time on numbers (census data) and also wandering in the desert, and Deuteronomy is mostly about hydrogen isotopes.
After the science lesson, Deuteronomy ends with Moses' death. Moses has handed the reigns to Joshua, which is then the next book of the O.T.
From that point on, I can never remember any order.
