You do need to know certain case studies, and should be able to recall the procedures used and results found.

You need to know them as detailed as they are in the book. No more, no less.

Depending on which book. Some often leave out important information, such as statistics, to make them easier to understand. While other books don't filter the studies at all.

If you can remember the statistics as much as possible then use them! I always tried to put in as much detail as possible, just in case

Well statistics, such as the amount of participants used or findings presented as percentages, are a good talking point during evaluations and generally will sound better if you can remember them.

For example:
Something as simple as saying 'two groups of nine participants (five male & 4 female)' would offer more of a discussion and depth than saying 'two groups'.

Don't forget that the more you can say about a study; the more you are showing about how you understand it.
