Barbri Contracts & Sales Lecture Videos

Postby Nicolena. » Wed Jun 13, 2018 12:20 am

Is it just me OR does this barbri video for Contracts & Sales kind of suck? I'm in the middle of the second video.

I'm really starting to think about abandoning this video series for Contracts and just thoroughly review the barbri conniver. Any thoughts?

It wasn't the best but seeing as the lectures cover 80%-90% of the material you'll find on the mbe/essays (my estimate from having hit 500 adaptibar questions so far) it is probably worth watching. I just finished the 3rd lecture video and it was worth it for a solid 70% right on contract questions running adaptibar.

Is Prof David Epstein still the one doing this lecture? If so, he's the only entertaining lecturer of the bunch.

I figured as much. Thank you. Appreciate your input.

I'm not sure the two are mutually exclusive. You can get the same info from reviewing the mini conviser outlines without having to sit through those god awful lectures.

I watched the first lecture and skipped lectures two & three. Not sure if I'll go back to listen.

Watch it at 2x (or whatever the next speed is)

Does anyone know what percentage of the course we're supposed to be at right now? It used to say what are predicted overall percentage completed of the course would be, but now it just says how much we're expected to finish each day...which i find pretty useless.

Hmm interesting. Where exactly does it show that? Mine just says "expected progress" for the day. I was hoping to see something like "expected completion" of the program to see if i'm on pace. Some days I get assigned way too much, and I am not sure if that is part of the plan.

Yes the expected progress is where you're supposed to be at in order to complete the program "on time." Basically if you stay at the pace at least, you'll be done with the program by the weekend or so before your bar exam. If you want to see when you're expected to be done, just scroll through to see when your last assignments will be.

I thought the video was terrible as well. The worst multi-state lecture so far. The problem with straight up reading the outline or the CMR is that it takes so much longer to learn the information. In the end I slogged my way through the lectures and will be reviewing the the CMR.
