API Master Test Kit question

Am I supposed to shake the other bottles of my API Master Test Kit like I do Nitrate bottle #2?

I don't believe it is necessary.
Out of habit, at a minimum I invert the reagent bottles a few times for all of the tests. But I do not shake them intensely.

Only nitrate part 2 needs to be shaken like crazy.
I shake all also but not like the nitrate #2....
Here the directions for API master kit to verify;

Aside from nitrate bottle two, I shake each bottle the same number of times as drops I'm supposed to add. No real reason for that particular number. Just feels even.
