So I study Business and I keep on getting assigned loads of reading every week. And in the lecture, they cover 5 out of the 10 topics in the textbook. So my question is, do I have to read the additional 5 topics as well and study it or can I skip it?
In terms of lecture content vs assigned reading, bear in mind that the lectures are usually just a starting point for you to go into further reading from and to consolidate fundamentals. You should check the syllabus to see what is on there that is examinable, as the lectures may not (and need not) cover all examinable topics, and some topics covered in lectures may not be examinable anyway.
