In the article, hypothesis test for coefficients in high dimensional regression models is considered. I develop simultaneous test statistic for the hypothesis test in both linear and partial linear models. The derived test is designed for growing p and fixed n where the conventional F-test is no longer appropriate. The asymptotic distribution of the proposed test statistic under the null hypothesis is obtained.
