Default Relevance of Module 6 case studies

Looking to crank through module 6 and 7 in the next two weeks here. The format of the modules changed a good deal from 1-5. Didn't get a clean hit when I searched the forum so figured I would make a quick post. Are any of these case studies particularly relevant in later exercises (6,7,FA), or are they more like doing the recommended readings in modules 1-5 where you can typically progress without doing all the readings?

Oof, okay thanks for the feedback. I might save all the files down just in case I want to go back to them, but looking EOM 6, I can see how there wouldn't be much need to reference back.
