Default Scary micro

Hello Dr. You got a serious patient to treat.
I am a graduate preparing for nov. '12 step 1 exam. Done with most of the subjects (only once- need to do again) except pharma and micro but guess what right now i am suffering with "Microbiology unable to cram syndrome". Kaplans notes are hell of scary for me (100 pages of cramming bacteria's and 60 pages of not able to remember viruses). It is causing mine multiple organ dysfunction. This was my case scenario. and now a question-

1. Possible way for remembering these coccuses and others?

2. I am really afraid of kaplan book. Instead i am trying to do "microbiology made ridiculousness simple" and FA and Uworld question. So will it be enough?

Its an SOS for all friends.....

Dont worry about that , I had the same problem..
I have always had this amnesia with bugs, drugs and scientist's names.
But Whatever you feel like that,
just keep watching the videos or audios for that.
not once, Thrice, Four times, five times..
then you cant forget it ever...
and yeah when you do questions, you know which are still you keep forgetting and juss go back at look again those....

Goog luck...
