Did you enjoy your BAR/BRI lecture today? Do you wish it could have gone just a little bit faster? You are not alone. A tipster reports that he too is bored to death by the interminable BAR/BRI lectures, and he’s not going to take it anymore:
After starting my Barbri Evidence lecture yesterday, I realized that the slower the lecture, the longer the lecture, and the more difficult it is to pay attention. So after 4 hours of searching the web and reading every blog available, I realized that ever since Barbri changed the software they use for the lectures, no one could adjust the speed at which these videos are played.
After about an hour of work, I pieced together a quick and easy way to watch the lectures at 1.5X speed. I am not only saving time, but I feel like it is actually easier to pay attention when they are moving through the material quickly.
Here’s the secret solution to making BAR/BRI go 50% faster…
We love it when a person aggregates information from around the internet and puts it together in an easy-to-digest format. That’s what our tipster has done for BAR/BRI students whose attention spans have been whittled down by the digital age:
As an additional note, the speed-up can only be done in Windows.
1. Start the lecture.
2. Double click on the video to make it full-screen.
3. Hold down control + shift + G, and it will play at a faster speed. To put it back to normal speed, hit control + shift + N.
That’s it, Enjoy!
We don’t want to reveal the tipster’s identity, but he is a graduate of Florida State College of Law. This once again proves the old adage that in the real world (of bar exam studying), your performance is what matters, not where you went to school.
We hope this information finds you in a timely manner. It’s the summer solstice. That’s usually about the time people start getting serious about the upcoming bar exam (the stragglers wait until after July 4th).
