How to study vessels

Q. I am having a hard time memorizing and knowing the differences and characteristics between the types of arteries/veins. Is there a way to approach this?

A. I would organize the information in a table something like this, focusing on the main differences between the different vessels. 

It would be overwhelming to try to memorize each layer for each vessel, as they tend to be very similar – but if you focus on the features that are unusual, that will make it more memorable and meaningful. I filled in a couple rows to give you an idea of what I’d focus on.
