    Every time I revisit taxonomy I feel like I'm forgetting things. What's the easiest way to learn this?
    I think bootcamp has some free videos that go through most of what you need to know. It does it in a flow chart kind of way and is very helpful IMO. I took notes on this and reviewed it. That’s all I used for taxonomy.

      This may not be a particularly useful way for you but it worked for me. I have a particular love of languages, so the way I recalled taxonomy was by looking up the ancient Greek and Latin origins of all the taxonomic classifications. It was a fun exercise for me to learn some Greek while also studying the material. Perhaps languages aren't your thing. But it would be helpful to turn learning this material into a fun activity that you enjoy.

        That's actually really smart. I may have to do this lol

        Have you tried this for anatomy classes?
