Re: Mapping Tree to Snake

Has anyone mapped the skills from the tree to the snake? First time I was forced to do the snake I was doing the German from English course after its extension, so I had about 40 skills to completing the tree at L1 from L0.

Re: 1000's of points in a single day?

You can do a story in less than 5 min—they're very tolerant to mistakes—and get 30 XP on a desktop (web), say 360 XP in an hour, and 3 hours a day is not so big a deal. And if you're doing different stories, you even can learn something in process.
