    sorry if im posting this in the wrong place, but do we need to know something as detailed as where the neuronal cell bodies are of the sympathetic postganglionic neurons, etc.? should we just know the main concepts behind the systems, or do we need to know these minute details? Thanks guys

    That might be the sort of information you're given in a passage, but realistically you wouldn't be expected to know it coming in. In terms of what you SHOULD know....know the superficial divisions of the CNS and the PNS and its divisions (som, auto, symp, parasymp), neuronal cell structure and how action potentials and synaptic transmission work.
