I think it would definitely be helpful to know the difference and in which categories the Lyman and Balmer series fall on. Also, there is a homework question that asks to order wavelengths in order of energy (or might be length), in any case maybe know the general order.
In general, no memorization is required to solve a problem - everything you need will be given on the formula sheet. However, in this case, knowing the region of the frequency / wavelength of the electromagnetic spectrum will certainly be beneficial for you, both in terms of your chemistry knowledge and in terms of exams / tests.
It would be beneficial if you at least had a general understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum, particular visible light (400-700 nm). There was a question on the textbook, (1A5) I believe where it asks to put some of the radiation in the order of increasing energy, so that may be something to note.
