What is the best way to learn Ancient Greek?

I took Greek for two years in high school, and I'm taking it again in college. I'm finding it significantly harder this time around, probably because I don't have the time to devote to it that I did in high school. Are there good ways to memorize the charts and lists and obscure grammer rules, or do I just have to memorize them through brute force?
I'm really asking if there is some organizational system to understanding how Greek fits together. Right now, I'm doing flash cards for vocab, writing principle parts maybe a hundred times to get them in my head, and trying to take good notes in class. Is there something else I can be doing? I think I know something, but when it comes time to take quizzes or tests I'm failing miserably.
Any help would be appreciated!
