I’m an undergrad doing a reading with a professor in statistics. Since I’m going to graduate school he told me to go through at least the first 6 chapters of casella and Berger before starting saying “if you know 90% of this book you will get far since it’s fundamental”.

However, I noticed that such a book is like the first year theory sequence. It doesn’t have measure theory in it. Which made me realize, how far can one truly get in research with just a very strong foundation of casella and Berger, and linear model theory? What if someone didn’t even take a measure theoretic stats course, but only knew linear model theory and casella and Berger.

How far can they go?

depends on what areas is your research

like if you're doing methodology statistic, measure theory is not always needed

but i guess something like theoretical statistic, it will always be needed
