It is true that no outside knowledge of alkenes and aromatic compounds is necessary for the MCAT. However, these concept areas are still fair game on the MCAT; it just means that information regarding these classes of compounds must be given in the passage.

I would still study alkenes and aromatic compounds, simply because the MCAT passages are not exactly "reader-friendly". They should be a low priority subject in your preparation, though--certainly not as important as nucleophilic substitution reactions.
