Listening to an audio cassette has the benefit of hands free listening. If you are reading an educational book that requires you to do something that is hands on, it means that you will have to put the book down in order to do the project. If you are listening than you can actually do the project while you are listening to the instructions. This can make it easier for some to be able to learn the field.
