Test Out and Practice

Previously you had the option to 'test out' of a skill, but that option seems to have been removed. It would be great to have that back.

A problem that I've had with the 'practice' function for a long time is that it seems to pick one of your earliest, least practiced skills, and just goes through those one at a time. I would love if Practice was more cumulative of all the skills you had already worked on.

So, to be clear, we cannot 'test out' past level 1?

That is nutty. Doing '5 crowns' worth of basics is a waste of my time.

Don't do them then?

Where does it say anywhere you have to take lessons to Crown level 5? It's entirely optional, it's up to you if you do them or not. You only have to achieve Crown level 1 to progress and unlock the skills underneath.

I don't understand what the problem is?

You can complete Level 1, then put it in your rearview mirror.

I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean...
