Hey Forum...do you think DIT (doctors in training) is a "must do"?

ive done DIT and i think its a really good end review. I think if u have a month before ur test or something it helps a lot. I couldnt get through FA for the life of me but w/ DIT ur forced to go through it. If thats ur problem then i say its worth it but definitely not something to start w/.

Honestly, I've contemplated about that before as well. It all comes down to your own preference. Most ppl who have used it before say its a very helpful tool! And most ppl who haven't used it ... well you cant really use their opinion!
BUT I have also noted that so many 99ers who post their study plans do not use DIT. So Im guessing its not as important or its not like you will miss out on something if you dont use it. Plus as long as you can go over FA urself u shud be good!

I've watched DIT's couple of videos, and i find it quiet useful. Why donít you go through topic you are weak at and see if that helps? If you have time, then go through it once. You can always go through video or audio twice the normal speed or half of that, it will cut the time in half. I intend to go through it at least once after I have done with Kaplan.
