SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm taking the COMLEX later this year and I have real problems memorizing the pharm. It is just so boring with crazy names and stuff so it comes in one ear and out the other. Forget about mechanisms, I can't seem to remember the drug names. I can remember like 100 drugs for a week but then I slowly forget everything. I need some good tricks Also, we don't have to know all those drugs in the pharm book, do we (like 2,000 drugs)? I was thinking about knowing the sympathetics, adrenergics, common antibiotics and "first aid" stuff and dropping everything else. Is this a good idea or are we expected to know more? Give some advice. I'm scared of pharm.
