Forget cramming, learn them.

Use pathoma.

I find it easier to learn them by age, + every each one of them has a distinct unique feature...

Ill give you a few tips i learned from mr. john barone

Cll = chronic long life (>60)
Cml = chronic midlife (25-60)
All= All my children (3-7)
Aml= adults (15-39)
Hairy cell= Happens in hairy individuals (men) (trap +ve, trap the hairy beast)

obviously this is just something you probably know already but it helps
