Trying to diagnose a problem with my 08 Macbook.

OK, So.. I've recently purchased a 2008 Unibody Macbook on eBay for all of $189. Looks GREAT butÖ
I got cheap because it was dropped from roughly 4 feet and landed flat. *splat*
No Hard drive was included.
Now. It works when I turn it on: CD Drive, Light(s) etc.
But the LCD obviously does not work.
My questions are:
1. Do you think I should buy a hard drive first to run tests on it?
Ex: Making sure ports, keys and logicboard functions
2. If I bought the LCD first will it boot up and can I still run basic test without a hard drive?
Ex. Ports, Keys, logicboard.
I've replaced LCD's and Cracked screens before on Macbooks AND iPhones. I'm also a general computer tech. So I'm good with repairs, but not at diagnosing issues..
Truth.. Iím absolutely clueless as to how Macs function, so Iím sorry if the questions seem a bit crazy.
I own a few Apple products and I enjoy them including the Macbooks Iíve repaired so I wanted one for myself. So Iím starting with this one.
