I will plan to purchase her again. I have 14 points commander And this is the build that I take: priority target, expert marksman, basics of survivability, fire prevention, and concealment expert. And then I will extend it with these upgrades: main armaments mod.1, damage control system mod.1, aiming system mod.1, damage control system mod.2, and concealment system mod.1. This build are my response to my phobia of HE spammers. Although she is a secondary beast, I think that endurance build is the most mandatory for every BB. You can correct me if I take the incorrect build or perks. I also need some tips on how to play her correctly.

Personally I would swap Expert Marksman for Adrenaline Rush, and Basics of Survivability for Superintendent to get the extra heal and other consumables. You can still pick EM and BoS once you grind out the last 5 points.

I've seen little to no improvement after upgrading the Aiming system mod, but that's just my opinion. I've read that Bismarck's main guns are disappointing at long ranges (around 15km) so I changed it to secondary battery modification and another mod to increase their survivability.   Don't get me wrong, I love the ship's handling but the shells scatter around and miss the target even when the said target is not in motion.  So I let the secondaries spam HE at enemies at 9km range, its better that way.  They cause more damage by the minute than I do with my main guns.  A manual secondary gun control captain skill significantly improves their accuracy!

Is there such a thing called "correct build", or "incorrect build" for that matter. You have to think about what works and what doesn't. From my experience, a main gun oriented build for Bismarck yields to very low output. Cause "German Engineering" in WoWS is pretty garbage with 1-2 exception.

To get something out of your main gun, you usually have to go as close as 12 km or even closer. So using secondary build is better IMO. Besides, naturally Bismarck is strong against HE spam. She suffers against AP.
