Default TCA Cycle and other cycles?

For step 1, I know we need to understand concepts about the cycles such as TCA, urea etc and know the rate determining enzymes but do we actually have to have the pathway steps and each enzyme memorized?
Thank you

Not really. Just the steps which are relevant but donīt waste time in learning every single step by heart
