Basically, just know the properties of a catalyst, why they're used, how activation energy is affected, and calculations revolving around activation energies.

I think it would be important to know the difference between a catalyst and an intermediate and how to tell that a catalyst needs to start in the reactants and end up in the products.

Just that they speed up reaction rate by lowering activation energy
