DIT follows first aid and has the page reference at the bottom of the screen.

I would say do DIT if your foundation isn't strong or if you are just too tired to read. There really is no difference. I prefer DIT because I hate reading..

also.. the usmlerx videos are pretty bad. they simply read the book to you while DIT actually explains it with amazing professors..

usmlerx is just some medical students (not qualified professors) from yale that read the book to you.

I never took a look at usmle secrets, I will tell you I am a strong believer of having less resources as having too many may confuse you. One disease in one book won't really be different in another. First aid is what you need to know for the exam but first aid doesnt explain the concepts well. DIT will basically teach you first aid and draw it all out for you.

My basics are too week, thats why I am thinking about giving first aid + DIT during a year, while studying at the same time for clinical as the same time as step 2 ck.
You have a lot on your plate. In think if you just outline a solid plan of what needs to be done and by when and with confidence I think you will do amazing. Just make sure you stick to your original plan and modify it as you go. Try not to follow the advice of too many people including me because everyone has their own way of studying and what works for them may not work for you. Just make a solid plan that works best for you and stick to that. Just keep the confidence in what you're doing a priority at all times.
