You can speed it up in vlc - if you have an older version of the program right next to the volume regulation bar in the lower right corner there is a button - click on it and you will be able to slow down/speed it up
In newer version - up in a toolbar there is File, Play (or Playing) - click on it - there's "speed" option in it.

Try using MPlayer X , it works suburb and you can adjust the speed according to your need.

don't give up on the videos just bc of such a small thing

if you want to try, play the video on vlc and send a printscreen of that here - I'll try to help on how to speed it up

In VLC you can change the speed of the videos through the "Playback" menu. It gives you the option of either speeding it up or down to your liking. That's on a mac (see screenshot). In the Windows version there should be a little 1x mark at the bottom, that you can change (see screenshot 2), in addition you change the speed by clicking the arrows. Hope that helps.

Thanks Hope2pass...

Guys...

What else do you suggest for behav/biostats

Am reading HY Biostats at present...

For behav... do you guys prefer BRS or HY... I know most use Kaplan... but if you have gone through HY/BRS please let me know....

Also, do you suggest the 25$ Uworld subject review for Behav/Biostat?
By any chance does anyone have a bootlegged copy of it?

Appreciate all your inputs.
Thanks

I've used Kaplan for the psychiatry part. I glanced at HY, but ended up doing BRS because of the extra questions there, which I found useful for solidifying the material.
