My transcript has abbreviated a lot of names, can I enter the full name from the course catalog?

I did some research on SDN and I found a thread from 2006 where apparently AMCAS said that was ok, but I'm not sure if this still applies 6 years later? Course name AMCAS

AMCAS won't answer the phone all week and won't respond to my emails. :(

There were some course names that were just truncated on my transcript and it was not clear what the course was really about. I entered the full name for those in my application and it did not seem to have caused any delay. I submitted 5/28 and it verified 6/1.
However, the advice above it probably a safer bet.
