Neck Lymph Node Locations

I am having a difficult time remembering the placement of the lymph nodes in the neck. As part of our validation for Head-to-Toe Assessment, we have to know the location of the lymph nodes to palpate in the neck. I found this picture @ http://www.nursing-help.com/2012/05/nursing-assessment-of-head-and-neck.html that shows the locations well.
