What is the difference between steady state and pre eq approaches?

They are both just different ways to reach an associated reaction mechanism or rate, but he said not to worry about steady-state, so I would just focus on pre-equilibrium problems. You will get the same answer both ways.

In lecture professor Lavelle mentioned that we only need to focus on the Pre-Equilibrium approach.
