    Hi,

    To pass the exam? No
    To help understand some of the objectives (such as cable making) - yes.

    Hope this helps!

    As Boycie said, not to pass the exam however to give you a better grounding in any chosen subject it's always better to get hands on experience.

    agree with the above - hands on for cabling, yes - if you have that already book-work should do you - it did me!
