Start Study

On the home screen select study now and then select your subject.  You are now studying.  To end, hit the subject again and rate that session.  A 100 minute study session rated at 8 – will log you 80 quality minutes of study.  Subjects appear with a number and ranked in inverse order of your study.  The ones where you do less study are now closer to hand!
