I agree... and so does Oxford Bilingual,
restar vt
a (Mat) ‹ número › to subtract, take away; restar algo DE algo to take (away) something FROM something,
subtract something FROM something; restar 15 de 36 = take 15 (away) from 36, subtract 15 from 36
b ‹ gastos/cantidad › to deduct, take away; restar algo A algo to take away o deduct something FROM something
c ‹ importancia/credibilidad/mérito ›: quiso restarle importancia al incidente he tried to minimize o play down the importance of the incident; estos hechos restan credibilidad a la hipótesis these facts detract from the credibility of the hypothesis, these facts make the hypothesis less credible

You're welcome.
One way to remember is to make up sentences of your own with the new word and/or expression... It may take a bit of extra time, but if you create 15 or 20 sentences expressing your own ideas... or otherwise, using the word, it helps a lot to make it 'yours', and remembering from here on out...
