    if mean studying smarter, categorize your systems and their diseases, and meds in 1 category. for example
    cardiac disease s/s of disease meds adv rxn to med
    htn high bp digoxin nausea, vomitin

    -know the tests for each disease and any special indications for specific test the nurse should be aware of.
    - use the internet, google in things you don't understand and you will get a simpler explanation- webmd, discoveryhealth, are all helpful

    this is all i have for now, these helped me much., good luck!
