Welding open root plates is a great way to prepare for a 5g pipe test.
As long as thickness, bevel angle, root opening, and land are the same, the same amperage, settings, and techniques that work on plate will work on pipe.
With pipe, you will also need to practice body positioning and transitions to different rod angles but other than that, the techniques used on practice plates will work on pipe.
