Python Introducing Tuples Getting to Know Tuples Introducing Tuples

One of the pre-requisites is not part of the track I'm on. Should I take it anyway?

I'm currently on the Full Stack Foundations track, and just finished Python Basics. The next step is Introducing Tuples, which says I should have already taken Introducing Lists, but it is not part of the track. Should I take it anyway?

Personally I always find it best to go off track for a bit to learn a pre-requisites otherwise you might spend a lot of time trying to do a load of guess work on something you've not learnt about when its generally much easier to spend an extra hour or so learning the pre-requisite as not only will it all make more sense when doing the current part of a track it will also a lot of the time be something you may need to know about in the future anyway so ends up making your life a little easier in the long run too.
