I know what you mean. It's like learning a new language. If we were babies, we'd have no problem :chuckle .
I basically learned it for the test. But until you start dealing with those drugs on a daily basis, you'll never completely remember them. Sometimes if you notice what the drug name ends with, they are usually in the same catagory. I hope this helps.

Ouer class had a ton of notes every lecture, because we only had class once a week. We had online note outlines and we were supposed to fill in with info from the lectures. I would take the outlines to class and fill in the other stuff, then take it and copy the entire thing by hand. It took probably 6 hours per lecture, and as you can imagine, by test time, my stack of papers was huge. After that I would just carry around my hand written notes and read them every chance I got. I never really had to sit down and study if I just kept reading over everything, because eventually I would be able to finish the sentences and go over lists without even looking. It helps to carry maybe one or two pages with you at a time. I don't know if this would work for you, but it got me through just fine. Good luck!

Thanks to both you & J Lynn. Your advice helps a lot. Now I know there's no really easy formula.... just lots and lots of study.
