An Order of Precedence?

Greetings everyone,

My question today is this:

When learning scale forms (say after you have all 14 positions of the Gmaj and minor memorized), is it beneficial to follow the circle of fifths, chronological order, or does it make absolutely no difference whatsoever in which order I learn the 14 position system for the other 11 scale tones?

If I am not being clear, I understand that ALL scale tones should eventually be applied to the 14 position scale system. I am curious as to whether or not a specific order is more beneficial to musical understanding.

If 12 bar blues is based upon a I, IV, V progression and I learned the 14 position of the G, will learning C (IV) and D (V) give me a benefit in the ability to solo over a G major blues song or should I just move on to A as the next 14 position system to memorize and not worry so much about the order of precedence?
