When I took advanced patho, I found that I did better when I wasn't memorizing, rather working through things. Make sense of the pathways, the body maintains homeostasis rather artistically and eventually makes sense! I implemented this method to students while working as a tutor, and it seemed to be helpful for them as well.
Instead of Quizlet, maybe grab a whiteboard or blank paper and write out pathways. I like to use the RAAS mechanism as an example (sorry if you haven't made it to this point yet). Start with a picture of poor renal perfusion, and an arrow leading to the release of renin from the kidneys and angiotensinogen from the liver, which then combines and becomes angiotensin 1, once ACE is released by the lungs, angiotensin 1 becomes angiotensin 2 and so on and so forth.
This is also a helpful way to set you up for pharmacology, when you will learn how medications act on these pathways to create outcomes. In my previous example, ACE-inhibitors are used to block the conversion of angiotensin 1 to angiotensin 2, preventing the vasoconstriction of arteries and sodium retention. Good luck.
