Can we use real convergence tests like those for complex series?

Can we use real convergence tests like those for complex series?
You can use them to test a complex series for absolute convergence. In other words, take the absolute value of each term and then test the resulting series of positive terms for convergence. If a series of complex terms converges absolutely then it will converge.
