AuthorTopic: Can i skip the chapter of Hypothesis in Quantitative methods?

I was working on Hypothesis and it just flew way above my head. However i am just wondering if i could skip this chapter, but definitely master the other topics such as probablity, technical analysis, TVM and other quant chapters.

How relevant is Hypothesis in Investment Management or in the I Banking Industry?

Don't completely skip over something, try your best to comprehend the material and then move on to something else but make a point to go back to it later on. there was a poster here (who shall rename nameless) that failed level 1 in december that had asked about skipping topics. you're just shooting yourself in the foot.

Besides, level II quant is full of hypothesis testing. Even if you (somehow) get by Level I you'll have to revisit it at Level II.

No, don't skip it, it's an important concept that keeps coming up in later chapters and in level 2. It's not difficult to comprehend, if you don't like the official book's explanation, find a different book. Don't skip it if you have time.
