    Make associations and connections between the terms to be memorised with your everyday life or with the things around you. Let's say the cure for fungi is nizoral , then make a connection that would make you remember like " fungi is "nize"; nize here represents nizoral and so forth.

    In general antibacterial drugs usually have the suffix "llin" or "ine" Some cardiac drugs have the word "cardio" in them... etc. You could also from transcriptions; like in "parasitism the drug is quantrel" , the acronym "PQ" could be formed . etc.

    The one important thing that you should remember is that never view it as difficult. Think of it as just a way for you to avoid alzheimer's disease later in old age. LOL... and think of it as fun, so you can memorize more easily. If you think you can, then YOU REALLY CAN. Good luck.
