Just do as the chinese do - write and write again and again until it sinks into your head. It does take a while to know the ABCs of chinese before it starts becoming easier.

The characters were not created randomly. There is a reason for their form even though it can often be difficult to find it. Sometimes it's phonetic (it is based on a character that does not have a common meaning but simply because it sounds similar), sometimes the character has evolved so much that it has little relation to its original form. Simplified characters have had a lot of the original "meaning" removed from the character, although again the simplification was not do on a totally random process.

Look up the character on www.zhongwen.com This site gives an explanation for the form of individual characters. Its index is based on tradition characters (you can search using pinyin though), which makes sense for this type of site. Nevertheless it displays individual characters in both traditional and simplified form (so the site is still useful if you are studying simplified characters). Rapidly you start to recognise how characters are simplified so choosing the correct traditional character in the index becomes fairly easy. If you really have hassle finding the correct character you can always search on a pinyin word basis instead of character basis.
