Default Is it necessary to remember things from KLN

Hey guys, I'm in a dilemma (as usual). My major concern is that I have been preparing for a long time and the reason is because of my ambition of wanting to score very very well.

However, this is what I classify as a subtype of OCD and it's not letting me move forward to the next step. I know concepts but I have yet to memorize the tiny details that will take me from "ahh, this seems familiar" to "I definitely know the answer to this". Because of this, I'm now memorizing more and more detail but I'm doing it from kaplan LN combined with FA because I don't want to go to UW and feel like I'm guessing on questions.

Is this the correct approach? I mean, if I do it this way, it will take long, but it'll also give me the confidence I need to answer questions and for the test also. I read whatever this way, and if I do questions right after, I only miss like 2 out of 50 questions of that topic. Is this the usual?

All women are artists and makeup's our muse. XO
