Starting out

As a new member, but someone that has read probably thousands of threads, I am about to begin the journey of this marvellous software!
Reading some posts suggests that it may not be appropriate to follow Andrea’s ‘Fritzing’ diagram in the Wiki. Does this relate only to PCB builds and setups; i.e can it still be followed for breadboard versions ?
I plan on buying the diagram parts and assembling on breadboard to start to get the feel of how it all works before embarking down the PCB route.
Thank you in advance of any help.
