Ways to remember math formulas or Top 200 Drugs

I feel like I'm getting it, but then... I'm not. My instructor teaches us super fast, to where it is overwhelming, and I try my best to jam it all in there. I really like the class, and instructor and I do envision myself as a pharmacy technician. I know I can do it. But please, is there any other ways of studying, practice testing, anything.

Ways to remember top 200 drugs: memorize them by drug group!
by: Anonymous

To learn the top 200 drugs I recommend making flashcards and studying them everyday, A LOT. I memorize drugs by group. For example, I started with the Penicillin antibiotic group and memorized it by writing it out in this format several times over and over by hand. "Penicillin Vk, penicillin, Amoxil, amoxicillin, Augmentin, amoxicillin and calvulanate..." I start with the Brand name and the generic name follows then another brand name and generic name, etc. those are the common drugs in the penicillin antibiotic group. Now go to the Tetracycline antibiotics "Vibramycin, doxycycline" and now the Cephalosporins....
Try to memorize a new group every week. If a group is small then memorize the next one. Just practice writing them out in the order I showed you it helped me at least:)
