Have you already gone through the Kaplan videos and books? If not, I would suggest going through those first. If you've already done that then I would suggest doing DIT. I'm only half way done with uworld but it seems to me that most of the questions and answers come straight out of First Aid. Get to know your First Aid better and your scores should improve .
