Here's what you should do

Keep practicing questions and whenever you see a lab that you are not sure of its normal values check its reference range in the qbank itself (Kaplan, UW, Rx, and Consult they all have them).

Gradually you will see that you have memorized the normal values.

Remember. Awkward tests such as hormonal levels are usually given the normal reference range in the question stem itself and you don't need even to look up the lab values.
