    Which is the best?

    "Students have to memorize facts in a rote fashion OR manner OR way."
    Which is the best, fashion, manner or way? Thanks.

    I think you can use all, though 'manner' sounds most natural to me.

    tdol, after my last posting, "by rote" came to my mind.

    How about "Students have to learn facts by rote."?
    Is this better? Thank you.

    It's fine, and you could also use 'by heart'.
