It means you can bypass the skill and the lessons in it if you pass the test. But, once you open a lesson inside of that skill, the option to test out will disappear.

Thanks. Is one circle (in the to-be-golden tree) a skill, or a lesson?

Test out will clear that whole section (round circle in main tree) but beware, there are no hints when you hover. I didnt use this at all when I did my spanish tree, but I did use it certain section in my reverse tree, but only areas where I knew my stuff stone cold, like in most of the perfect tenses. There was no point in answering 200 questions (10 lessons of 20) in present perfect when its a simple formula based skill that never waivers, where for the same verbs (aside from Haber) I couldnt tell you a subjunctive conjugation to save my life. Probably still can't, lol.

Thanks. I don't want to test out of anything; if I had it to do over again, I would have skipped the placement test and suffered through all the lessons, just to ensure I hit every word.
