I know a lot of people use mnemonics to remember labs. If you like using them, there are a ton on google. I personally had so much trouble remembering labs for some reasons so I honest just rewrote them over and over till it was impossible for me to forget!

Not a study tip, per se, but a test-taking tip: the first thing I do when sitting down to take a nursing exam (NCLEX, specialty certification, etc.) is to write down my lab value reference ranges on my scratch paper. I don't even look at the first question until I pour all of that information out of my brain and onto the page. Many of the values require rote memorization; at the start of the test I can usually remember them off the top of my head, but an hour in my brain is so fried from critical thinking questions that I don't want to have to worry about whether or not I'm remembering a lab value correctly.

I've always used flashcards for labs (literally the only circumstance in which I use flashcards), and run through them up until a few minutes before the exam begins, but you should study whatever way works best for you.
