    There are 4 versions of these up, I would advice NOT to pick R3 as it had an issue which stopped me from completing it. I have completed these type of studies before on the same setup, so don't think it's an issue my end.

    I *think* when you start the study it gives you four hours to finish if that helps. I started it, logged in to their site and then did the school run! It tells you when you can take breaks.

    When you've done it, you're assigned to a random group with work that might continue over a few weeks (depending on which group you're in) so potential fee is nice. It does take a lot of concentration though.

    So pleased to get this bonus to put towards paying off my credit card
