So I am studying pharm for NCLEX and wondering what the most important drugs will be on the EXAM? Will learning all the suffixes really help, or should I be learning the entire drug names? All feed back is much appreciated.

I haven't tested yet, but my professor's always stressed learning suffixes in addition to broad categories of medications - that it will be impossible to know every single drug, but that classes and knowing unique drugs from that category is a good strategy. My nursing psychology professor told us whatever we do, to please know Librium and Lithium for your psych meds, that boards love lithium questions.
