in thread Bit operations for beginners

I used a chart like yours too for a while. After the instructor completed Boolean algebra and tested us on it, we weren't required to use it any more. At that point Karnaugh maps became my good friend! I guess that marks me as an engineer...
Like you I order my chart as a mathematician, engineer or programmer would ...

I found the following counting method most useful as it worked best with K-maps. In fact, this is the table I sketched into the front cover of my digital circuits textbook :)

A B A or B A nor B A xor B A and B A nand B
0 0 0 1 0 0 1
0 1 1 0 1 0 1
1 1 1 0 0 1 0
1 0 1 0 1 0 1

Cheers,
