pray to whatever god you believe in for mercy... and get ready for hell. in all seriousness though... just keep doing what you did in first year, just be ready to do a lot more studying. if you thought you studied as much as you could in first year, you'll be amazed how much more you can do in second year. just try and keep up and learn as much as you can... this is the stuff that matters for boards, so start looking to what is in first aid, start annotating (but remember that a lot of the minutia you won't need to know). also, i read robbins and did LOTS of questions (webpath, robbins qbook, lange and FA qbooks... and the review sessions). i felt like they helped, but remember you'll have to re-remember everything come board study time. finally... although 2nd year is way more interesting.. just get used to second year not being compatible with life... and remind yourself that 3rd year makes it worth all the crap that is 2nd year. also... don't over commit to too many student orgs.
