The best way is through practice and practical use, the more you use the property the more likely you are to remember it, like most things you learn even outside of programming.

Smashing Magazine have a cheatsheet availible too: https://media-mediatemple.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/images/html5-cheat-sheet/html5-cheat-sheet.pdf

You don't need to remember everything. You just need to know how does everything work. If you forgot something, you can find it on some manual, such as W3school.

In few months in Web development, you will know most of them ;)
