Eke, we are here to help you with the basics in Chemistry, not to second guess your teachers. Looking for something remarkable cannot be delegated to someone else. You can use the Internet to research anything under the sun including some unique separation techniques. I gave you most of them and I can give you more. You will probably not be asked about them. If you really want them you should be able to find them on your own. Here is one Internet source. Try to find more:

You can make flash cards with some questions like... "How do you separate a solid from a mixture of a solid and a liquid?" which has the answer "Filtration" at the back.

So what you do is take a random card like this as many times as you want and try to guess the answer. Check the answer after your guess to see if you were right! This should be practiced many times in order for this to be effective.

That's just one method of learning, feel free to make your own, whatever you find most effective. :)
