Learning names isn't the hard part and you're actually expected to know them. The questions on the exam will be on mechanism of action, adverse reactions and drug interactions. Best way to learn these is through Q Banks.

Don't worry, once you start doing Q Banks it will become much easier. Here you can read my experience:

How I scored 249 on my Step 1 - IMG


In the exam micro are mostly basic questions and for me they were not so hard. You will need to learn neuroanatomy especially when seeing images, but again, they are mostly basic questions
