    Is the lac operon stuff on DAT?
    I'm reading Schaums and don't know if I should skip that chapter...

    Anyone else reading Schaums? If so, could ya share which chapters to leave out?

    I'm using schaums to supplement kaplans bio. I'm mainly focussing on plant and animal classifications, photosynthesis and evolution. hope this helps

    Not sure if your DAT test will have a lac operon question but you should definitely know it...

    I don't think you need to know the details of how the lac operon works. Just know what an operon is in general and the parts associated with it.
