    How much emphasis should we place on these for the step 1?

    Also, is there any easy way to remember them and what their derivatives are?

    You might get 1 question about them. I'd review them but wouldn't waste time trying to know them cold.

    DiGeorge and the 3rd/4th pouches seems like it'd be the most likely question on this.
