    It is good to have an idea of what each hormone does because they might throw at you a passage about hormones andddd you will not be happy. The EK bio book has a good outline of them so it is not bad to have a general sense of their function.

    You DEFINITELY need to know "all the physio stuff" and hormones + functions to do well on the Biological sciences. Here's a list of everything that is fair game (aka you need to know this) for the MCAT BS section: https://www.aamc.org/students/download/85566/data/bstopics.pdf

    Relevant excerpts:
    Like the above poster said, I think EK does a great job on the endocrine system. You pretty much need to know/understand everything in the EK bio book for a good BS score.
