True, it helps alot and increases one's awareness.

I am still struggling with Escorts and their small firing arcs, though. And I definitely have no mastery over my speed yet, either.
If you belong to a fleet get a buddy and do a few 1vs1 dogfights to gets used to doing tight turns. The pratice helps alot as well as showing you what the ship can and can't do.
The biggest thing I have to remember is to not get caught in always turning the same direction to bring my cannons to bear on a target.
