Help how to study the usage of drugs????????????

As a beginner, I have been bothered by this for a long time:

take SVT as an example, many drugs can be used for SVT, so should I memorize in the way" A can treat SVT and post MI, B can treat SVT and Atrial fibrillation"

Or should I memorize like" For SVT, the priority of drug to use is 1 A,2 B"?

And if the second way is the correct way, then where to find the priority information?

And also, many usages are overlapping which makes it so so hard to memorize them correctly ( especially when you take the exam you are under pressure, for me , pressure can somehow shut down a small part of my brain)

I know many ppl on this forum have amazing ways to study, can anyone help me with this one? How did you solve this problem? ( if you had it)

I would be truly, seriously,very much, thankful.

When it comes to anti-arrhythmias, this is what you need to know is
1. Classification and list of drugs in each category
2. Mechanism of action of each class
3. Effect on action potential curve and duration for class 1 and 3
4. Effect on pacemaker tissue for class 2 and 4
5. Drug dissociation curves for class 1 (its in UW)
6. Side effects of 1a, amiodarone, adenosine
7. 1b used post MI.
