    When you take a level in a class all the class skills will give you a bonus +3 to them if you have one or more ranks in them.

    If you put a rank in a skill that is not a class skill then you don't get the bonus +3.

    My understanding is that once any of your classes makes a skill a class skill its always a class skill. So as long as you put a rank in the skill you'll get the one time +3 bonus.

    You could multi-class and eventually have every skill as a class skill too!

    I agree with Harmor. That is how I understand it as well. Cross class skills really don't exist anymore per se. Check out the table Skill check bonuses.
    All skills can be bought at a 1 for 1 rate. The 2 for 1 rate for cross class skills are gone. You get a one-time bonus of +3 if that skill is a class skill that you have and you have put at least one rank in that skill.

    I am personally enjoying the change.

    Yep, it works just like Harmor and WhiteTiger said. I also really like this change, both from the simplicity standpoint and the feel standpoint.
