I would like to claim chapter 1.

:help: Am I right that I leave out the review outline and the questions for students that come last?

I have figured out how to do the ID tags.

You are quick!


Here are the notes for chapter 8: And you did a fine job overall. Just a couple:

Please change the file name to 08 instead of 8, as all files must have 2 digits.

At the start, please reduce space to under 1 second (preferably around a half second).
At :22, please add "chapter 8"

At 1:04, I heard "conscious" should be "conscience"

Section 17:

Really good reading.
At 6:44 where you said, "...march rapidly with the enemy" should be "..march rapidly with the army"

Sorry - here is the format we need to follow (this is from the first page of this thread):

americanleaders_##_gordy_128kb.mp3

where ## is your file number 08
Can you fix?
Thank you
