Yes, many have and that depends a lot on one's background info, speed and dedication.

All the best!

I am not sure FA+Uworld is enough, You have to add at least pathoma. I read plenty of experiences on this forum, one I can remember is a student from UK got 260+ using UFAP. I am doing those three too and I am on the fence about DIT now.

I've just started DIT afew days ago and i have to say, i luv it!! I read FA alone abt a month ago (at the beginning of my prep) & freaked out by the end of it coz i felt that i'll just have to memorize all if it without understanding alot but DIT is amazing in that they explain alot of things to u that we won't have as many things to memorize later. If u have the time (and patience ofcourse) plzzz do go for it. Btw, i'm almost doing the same plan as urs, except i've done sone URx qs last month+i plan on doing goljan instead of pathoma. When r u planning on taking the test? Hope u find this useful & best of luck to all of us

I'm hoping to take it @ the end of november. I have annotated goljan abt 2 yrs ago with his audios but had to stop studying then, thats why i'm doing it instead of pathoma but i think u should do pathoma if ur in a hurry coz it is much less (i heard) & he concentrates on high yields mainly. Best of luck

Hi noha83!
I started dit 2013 repro- I didn't like it because he was reading FA and I didn't read FA before. I think I'll read FA+ Pathoma first and go to dit later. Have you given any nbmes? I plan to give one in four weeks when I have done FA+Uworld+Pathoma 1x. Many of my friends are skeptical that I'm using only these material.
