Default american medical student; need advice

I am american medical student:
I am using

FA 2014
flash-card services(firecracker)
U-world, KAPLAN Q, uSMLE-rx

I am considering the following:
1. kaplan LN + audio
2. DIT

Kaplan is very long; I have the 2010 audios and the LN. Has anyone used these?

I have 6 months right now; and I am still taking class. It's difficult to fit it all in.

Anyone have thoughts on a plan?

1. Right now my goal is to break up FA into 1 week blocks and flash-card pharm + micro stuff into anki for 30 minutes a day.
2. I want to 1 pass through pathoma as well.
3. goljian i am sort of reading through....

has anyone had problems reading through first aid? it's so condensed; i don't like it for learning purposes. that's why i thought about kaplan LN.
i hope someone can respond!!!!

1. does anyone have DIT videos? would love to hear from you!
