    The aamc's list of topics states that only dna replication and transcription mechanisms will be tested. for what is tested on translation, it does not include the mechanism for translation. Is it safe for me to skim over translation, but not really try to remember nor study it in detail?

    Sort of... I believe you don't have to know the mechanism of how the t-rna enzyme moves the codons, but you do have to understand what translation does. The questions dealing with translation usually deal with where it takes place or what would inhibit it (as compared with what inhibits transcription.

    By the way, your supposed to post this in the sub-section for mcat study questions.
