Tips for Memorizing the Alphabet?

I was wondering if anyone had some advice or tips on how to effectively memorize the Dragon alphabet? 

I've been writing the runes (can we call them letters?) to the best of my ability and saying the sound they make to myself as I do so. Is this a good way of learning the Dragon alphabet for anyone else?

I haven't tried a sound-oriented way yet, that seems interesting.  I learned the alphabet by copying down Word Walls from the game and translating them.  After a few, I had the alphabet down except for a couple of the rarer letters.  Practicing writing helped a ton for me, too.

I made flash cards (index cards work great!) and I've been flicking through them every 5 or 10 minutes. Little and often!

I just look for stuff in-game/on this site and use a chart with the letters to figure it out. I'm bound to get it eventually.
