Default Help... it seems like I just can't remember anything

... I am getting a bit frustrated. I have finished with Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, Embryology, Genetics and Biochemistry. I am doing Kaplan (books an videos), FA, some HY, and just started with UW Qbank. I feel so bad because I am reading really serious... but it seems like I just cannot retain the real stuff... just the easy questions. I can't pass through the hard topics... and Biochemistry is just killing me...

Any good advice?

I think its a common problem. I have it too. But keep doing UW. The more questions you practice, the better you will become.
