I am perfectly comfortable with anyone wanting to go through Chapters 1-6 at an accelerated pace. If you choose to do that, be sure to consult with me. We can meet from time to time to talk about points that may not be obvious. Do remember, however, that 723/724 are "core" courses which form an important part of the qualifying exam.
