Should I buy an electronics kit to get started?

I was originally a EE major but I’ve since switched to computer science. However, electronics have still been a huge interest and I’ve been looking to get started. Is buying a kit worth it for beginners? I’m hoping to mostly do things dealing with LEDs. I have all the tools I need to get started, but I haven’t bought any materials yet. I’ve been reading a good amount about it and I still feel like I don’t know much. Any help is appreciated :smiley:
