My friend at uni has a previous degree in Psychology, so knows the purposes of seemingly every inferential test. I come from a clinical background, so haven't done much statistics since A level psychology.

Is it necessary to be able to recall the functions/purposes of every test when considering which test to use, or is it just as easy to simply look them up?

Nice! Good luck!

In that case, I think knowing the basic principles of the tests are important, including when to use them (perhaps just the most used). Things like which post hoc test to use can be looked up, and some of the less well known tests too.
