I don’t know what you had to do help memorize the names better, but if they moved from short-term to long-term memory somehow. Perhaps, some imageries, or some special properties or characteristics of each drug or the sound of the syllables or similar sounding words or whatever that helped to anchor each name to be in your own memory box in your brain. Some type of unique schema structure that is very personal to your brain memory structure would do it. As long as you are not drinking heavily or under extreme stress or other physiological abnormality or disorder in your brain, or you fall in at an end of neurodiversity spectrum, these things should come out easily as long as you frequently access them.

Stanford Mobile Inquiry-Based LearningEnvironment (SMILE) in Medical Education
• SMILE is an assessment/inquiry maker which allows students to quickly create own inquiries or homework items based on their own learning.
Global Knowledge sharing and learning through SMILE
• Inquiries drive knowledge generation• More knowledge leads to newer/more useful inquiriesTaxonomic classification leads the evolution of perspectives and inquiries
Have you tried to make a question in your life?What’s involved?First, decide a domain or topic. You have to know “some” stuff about it beforeyou can make questions.For example, if you are making a question regarding antibiotics, you will comeup with something like this:Which of the following is not antibiotic?• Bacitracin• Acyclovir• Neomycin• Chloramphenicol
What do you do as a student?Obviously, this will require memorizing a list ofantibiotics and antivirals.So you can see which one belongs to whichclassification or not.This type of questions triggers a simple recall.
Lower Order Question• Which one of following lists the pathogens in the correct order of sizes from the smallest to the largest?
More cognitively demanding inquiry• Which of following disease would be least likely associated with a result of an infectious pathogen?
Another example that requires little more than asimple recall, and thus more cognitively demandinginquiry would be:How do you most efficientlydistinguish the species ofstaphylococcus genus from thespecies of streptococcus genus?
This type of inquiry requires not only understanding different classifications at the factual level, but also deep understanding of subspecies along with numerous similarities and differences that may exist at more complex levels (e.g., visual, cellular, enzyme, etc.).staphylē, "bunch of grapes" streptos - “grow in chainsmostly harmless or pairs”S. Aureus causes Staph infections and S. Thermophilus is used to make yogurt.create toxins. T. S. pneumoniae causes pneumonia
