1) You don't need to study assembly in order to use a BASIC Stamp. The STAMPs are programmed in Parallax's version of Basic.
2) A good competent craftsman learns how to use a variety of tools for different tasks. Assembly language is one such tool.
3) Some tasks are accomplished better by programming directly in the instruction set of the computer. Some tasks can only be accomplished by programming directly in the instruction set of the computer. This gives you a level of control of the hardware that cannot be done in any other way. Assembly language is a convenient way to do this. It's much better than programming directly in a sequence of numbers which is what the computer actually uses.
