Drug Beta One Selective Beta Blockers

I always fail to remember the members of this group.
So I devised a mnemonic for them, hope it helps

AMEBA

Atenolol
Metoprolol
Esmolol
Betaxolol
Acebutolol

Although there are other beta one selective such as Nevibolol and Celiprolol but the five listed above are the ones tested in USMLE.

Now how about the non-selective beta blockers!
That's easy, it's everything else
