yes I think you should memorize them to be in the safe side , it might seem difficult and forgettable but with repetition I think it will become easier

It's important to read those topics from FA to know what out of whole mess is high yield. Do some questions as well to identify weaknesses and the style of how info would be tested in the exam.

You should try to memorize at least the key steps and enzymes . I would also suggest writing down the pathways in a separate notebook . It would be easier to revise at the last moment . Don't get bogged down by the details in the kaplan book . questions related to metabolism are often simple . you will realize this once you start doing question banks .
