Have you listened to Dr Lionel Raymon's Kaplan lectures (2007-2008 ed.)? This man is a great lecturer and he will make you understand the subject very well.

ANS is not that difficult to understand. You just need to memorize the drug names, and on what receptors they act. You also need to know the interaction between different receptors. Like, beta-2 stimulation (VD) would antagonize alpha-1 stimulation (VC). I hope you're also aware that alpha-2 stimulation would decrease NE release and cause VD, unlike alpha-1 (direct VC).
