Physics, like math, physiology and such, you cant simply memorize and hope to do well in. You can memorize all the theorems, formulas, equations, etc... under the Sun but it still won't help you out. You need to practice and learn to apply the stuff properly. You need to practice to understand what the question is asking and once you have that, think to yourself what equations fit, such as what equations have the unknowns and knowns? You can even write down what you know and what you don't know because sometimes it's not one nice equation and basic algebra, further on you'll realize you'll need multiple equations, derive equations, etc... . Best way is to practice the questions and when it comes to a test, you realize "this is just like this question". This is what I'd try to do and I tried to play to my strengths, which is basically being able to memorize damn near everything and when I think about it, it just appears infront of me (have a good photographic memory). Anyways, I'd try to just figure out if a question has certain elements, what do I know I need to use. Usually they weren't always the same so I'd then try to see what is different and what does the different stuff need. Hopefully I could work it out then.

I'm assuming you also have labs and labs are excellent as not only are they fun and easy to get high marks on your lab reports, but they also show you how you can apply the knowledge. I found the labs interesting not only because some were mickey-mouse ones but also because some of them showed how the originator of whatever theory, law, equation, etc... came up with it.

Do as many problems as you can. Subjects like Physics and Math are not spectator sports. You need practice and experience and eventually you will get the hang of it.
