Simple beginner way to learn antibiotics

I have no idea where to post this. The medicine forum seems to be all about applying to med and graduating and exams.

I'm year 3 and I've ALWAYS sucked at learning antibiotics. It's hard to get started when they all come in great detail and have specific use cases. Is there a beginners method to learning them so I can get started and learn the details after I have the basics of what drug for what sort of infection?

I read on a passmed comment somewhere where they categorised infections in different parts of the body usually indicates a specific antibiotic and I'd like to start off learning from that direction. The only thing I remember from it is Flucloxacillin is usually for skin and joint infections, seems generally correct.
