First Aid Memorizing First Aid?

Hey guys, my test is in a week and I have been going through FA everyday for the last 2 weeks trying to read it and get all the details down. The thing is I don't feel I have it memorized to the point where I could regurgitate it. I can answer questions remembering the info but I don't have the book "memorized". How important is it to memorize this book? I will def. be getting another run through it in my last 5 days.

Hey Nicki dear!!! Yeah you know I felt like I didn't have it memorized either! but u know memorizing Pharm, Micro, Immuno and Embryo i'd say are super important to def know straight memorization. The rest I can totally understand you feel like you cant regurgitate it. But you know everything does come back to you on the exam!!! I think youll do fine dude! And yeah another run through in the last 5 days would be like amazing!!!! But dont worry I felt the sameeee!
