You might get a slight edge, but simply because the APS is done on the very same simulator Ryanair uses for their assessments... So you will be familiar with the layout and confident in your ability when going in...
Apart from that, I don't see any advantage, the assessment could actually be harder if you have the APS, because they will expect more from you and give you more complex failures as opposed to the "normal" assessment, where you only have to demonstrate very basic handling skills, since you are unfamiliar with the aircraft and they simply can't expect you to perform perfectly.

The most important thing is COOPERATION with your partner and problem solving. They will teach you how to fly a 737 on your type rating, so that is not the priority for the assessment.

Briefings, CRM, TEM and handling of non-normal situations are the only things that matter...
