State functions are path independent. They are:

Pressure, density, temperature, volume, Enthalpy (H), Internal energy (U), Gibbs free energy (G), and entropy (s). Lyndon's trick to remembering is:

when i'm under PRESSURE and feeling DENSE, all I want to do is watch TV (temperature and volume), and get HUGS (enthalpy, internal energy, gibbs free energy, entropy)

A state function is a property whose value does not depend on the path taken to reach that specific value. Examples delta G , DELTA H, DELTA V, DELTA T. Path functions will be work and heat

State functions are any functions that can be derived by subtracting the final result by the initial result.

State properties are not dependent on the path taken to obtain that state, and consist of properties such as altitude, pressure, volume, and internal energy.
