Dealing the eStudy Cards

As you go through the card deck, indicate if you understand the card's answer ("Cards I Know") or if you feel that you need to study the topic more ("Cards I Don't Know"). The cards are moved to their respective pile based on your designation. The "I Cards I Don't Know" pile may be reshuffled and dealt again until you know the material. You can shuffle and begin again as many times as you like. Cards can also be skipped for review at a later time.

The Progress button will halt dealing and display your study progress in a tally of the number of cards you designated as "Cards you know", "Cards you don't know", and cards "you skipped". When you close the progress screen you will be returned to continue study at the point you left off.
