How much does it take to review batches? Also are records counted the same as batches?
@Nathaniel Simon Notheisen If your question is "how many records will I have to submit before I can review?" the answer is 1000.
To your other question, each batch contains a number of images, or records, and each project (for example Marriages from a certain time period in a state) contains a number of batches. Depending on the amount of information in an image, that image will have 1 or more Entries per image in your batch (a register will likely have many entries to index for that single image). FS Indexing (and reviewing, for that matter) both count the number of entries you have indexed toward your totals. So if you have a batch with 5 images and each of those contain 2 entries each, you will get 10 added to your total, whereas if you have a batch with one image that contains just one instance of indexable information, and by extension yeilds just one entry, your total will just increase by one.
Hope this helps and best of luck!
You have create 1000 entries before being given review privileges. A batch can have one or more images. Each image will have least one record. The records may have many names to enter. For instance, a muster roll is one record which could have 60 names. Each name you index is an entry.
"A batch is a small part of a project. Projects contain up to hundreds of thousands of historical document images. To facilitate indexing, projects are broken down into batches of up to 10 images. Batches are checked out by volunteers who index them, while other volunteers review the work of indexers."
"A record is information about an event, such as a birth, marriage, or death, from a historical document. A record is not to be confused with an entry, which is information about the record that has been entered into the indexing program."
"An entry is information about a record from a historical document that has been entered into the indexing program. An entry is often required for each person mentioned in a historical record. An image may show more than one record of an event. For example, an obituary may mention the name of the deceased as well as give a list of relatives, or a church record may show several marriages on one document."

Here is more information what a reviewer does and there are a couple of links at the bottom of the article that explain how to become a reviewer and how to review.
Is it the number in the right hand corner next to index, review, and total?
Yes, the number is Total Records under My Indexing Totals.
