Unhappy Advice needed to improve micro

Hey guys, I had a question, I recently did an nbme and it shows micro as my weakest subject. How do you guys suggest I improve this? Should I re-read kaplan or should I memorize First Aid (which I will towards the end anyway)?

Wink revision and revision

Micro is no doubt memorization which can be aided with mnemonics and pictures and repetition is the key word.
best of luck

Your so right! I'm going to focus on memorizing the micro section in FA and doing as many micro questions from UW. Thanks
