What is a good way of remembering the flats and sharps in all of the major scales?
Sharps: Fat Cats Gargle Daily After Eating Breakfast
Circle of Fifths starts with C (no sharps/flats). Next is G and so on.
Try to understand the circle of fifths. For sharp keys, find the scale with increasing number of sharps by going up a perfect 5th. For flat keys, find the scale with increasing number of flats by going down a perfect 5th. Then know the order of sharps (FCGD etc.) and flats (BEAD etc.).

Learning the 'Circle of 'fifth's & forth's, and being able to write and draw it out, on paper, helped me. Also recognizing, the concept of 'En-Harmonic', (i.e.) C# is same as Db, ), and writing out the 'Modes' in degrees.
