Can you test for spark at every cylinder?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Hi. mike. Before I check for spark in every cylinder. I removed the pcm, and i am going to dry it out including connectors. It appears that having to remove windshield cowling to remove intake exposed pcm. and it rained very hard, car was outside.In the morning I will install pcm, have a fully charge battery and see if it starts. If not I will test every coil for spark. I will keep you informed.
Thanks
