Weber's test

This picture will help you to remember Weber's test. (Well, that's my photo in the background :-) )
The defective ear is the one marked with a red 'X' and  the normal ear marked with green 'tick' mark. In Webers test, the tuning fork is held against the forhead in the place of 'W'. Weber's is lateralised to defective ear in conductive deafness and Sound ear in Sensorineural deafness. You can remember the picture using mnemonic 'X CoWS S'.
