Help Step 1 tips for remembering difficult-to-remember important topics

Hi,

I am taking my exams in 4 weeks, I am in dire need of any tips to remember:
1) All Hepatitis viruses, antigens and antibody serology - HbsAg, HbeAg, etc.
2) How to remember which DNA or RNA virus is single/double stranded, positive/negative sense.

I read FA and CMMRS (for Micro), I need last minute tips that were helpful for you in acing the exams!

Thanks!
