How do Rabbis do it?

Recently I've found ab orthodox Rabbi who I think is willing to work with me on my conversion. He's sent me the application for the Beis Din/requirements of the conversion - books to read, suggested readings, etc.

Right now I'm reading Understanding Judaism: A Basic Guide To Jewish Faith, History, And Practice by Rabbi Mordechai Katz, and I must say this book is PACKED with so much specific information and knowledge that I'll find it very hard to learn everything if I expect to be a Rabbi. How does a Rabbi become such a master over a vast amount of knowledge? Rabbis are expected to know such things but I'm wondering what ways they consume the information and simply remember all of it! I'm thinking about making flash cards to help me memorize many famous names and events. I just wonder, do other practicing Jews in Yeshiva or Rabbinical school use the same methods? I'm curious.

It's a combination of remembering the information, remembering where to find it, and a general understanding of how halacha works.
