Total is sum of five rounds.

Yes. Take a break when you want.

Do them in exact order, but you can take breaks in between.

Yes. If you can do the workout in 5 min or less move to next level.

On level one, day one, it says

"Do 1 pull-up, then 2 push-ups, then 3 squats; that is 1 round. Complete as many rounds a possible in 20 minutes."

Does this include rest time?

On day two, it says

"Do 2 pull-ups, then 6 push-ups, and finally 10 squats to complete one round. See how quickly you can complete each of the 5 rounds, resting approximately 3 minutes between each round. Do not count the rest time in your total time."

So I do one round, timing how fast I complete it, than take a three minute break and repeat four more times? Is my total time my best out of the five rounds, or the average of all five times? Is this the stat I use to determine if I should move on to the next level?

On day three, it says

"Do 10 pull-ups, then 21 push-ups, then 21 squats as quickly as you can counting any rest time taken. Stay 1-2 repetitions below failure, and do not train to failure."

Do I just do this once, timing the entire round including rest time? In terms of staying below failure, does that mean I should stop and rest when I feel like I can't do anymore until I regain energy and can continue? Do I have to do them in that exact order or can I break them up? Is this the stat I use to determine if I should move on to the next level?

I'm apologize for the long post, I have literally never exercised a day in my life outside of gym class in "ye olden days" of youth and I don't know what I'm doing really.
