If you have 4 weeks left DIT is not a good options as I realized when i took it up that it takes very long to complete it. It is very difficult to listen to 3 lectures a day and read the pages he covered in those 3 lectures . If you have an option to postpone you exam then it is wise to do so if u really want to do the course.
About the course ...it is good but i felt i could have done without it...it just keeps you motivated and maintains pace. Keep at least 15 days for your weak points and revision of FA after the course and before your exam.
Hope this helps and all the best.

I think if you got whole 4 weeks its a good choice, it will make you review whole fa 2011 in just 15 days, and still have 2 weeks more to review whatever you like to, or go over the book again and another NBME... =) But you will be "time-pressure" because you cant miss any other day... =) if you adjust your calendar, yes it is a pretty good plan, if not, read FA a couple of time ... =)

Psst: do it in 15 days DIT, otherwise you will overburn, it is really boredom to listen more than 3 audios and go over the book... remember to each day do 1 Qbank test from uw or kaplan.
