    When you study, look at the general drug classifications (analgesics, anticholinergics, cardiac meds etc.) versus specific details for each drug. Learning classification characteristics first helps you comprehend the detailed stuff later. Good Luck!

    thanks for the advice i sure do need it. this may be a silly question but is there anyway you could get me a copy of the classifications. just to get me started. i have no clue as to how many etc so if it is impossible i understand.

    Check someplace like half price books (used bookstore) if you have one near you. Or check ebay for some pharmacology textbooks. It doesn't matter which book if you're only using it for a basic knowledge, and you don't have to spend a lot of money.

    Another thing that helped me was to divide the drugs into "affects sympathetic nervous system" and "Affects parasympathetic nervous system". Amazing how that narrows down memorization of side effects.
