Default DIT is taking Long

So I wanted to get a thorough run of FA. My exam in on Nov 30th. Have gone through pathoma once 2 months back. Basically wrote out the whole book and annotated everything he said in his video. Before that did some kaplan but didn't get through much. I stopped studying for 2 months cause I had to go back to work. Now am off till my exam day. I thought I would start off with DIT to get through a thorough pass of FA. Day 1 went by fine I was able to finish the foundations lectures plus the first 3 neuro lectures, but the day 2 lectures are taking along time. I was only able to finish 4 lectures out of the 12 allocated for that day. So cranial nerves part 1 and 2, brain embryo and Regions of the brain. Mind you my neuro is weak maybe thats why its taking time and on top of that I'm noting most of what they are saying from their videos and also stuff from their study guide into FA. If this goes on it will take more than 21 days I think which is worrying me. I haven't yet integrated uworld. Planning to start the day after I was only able to get a 2 month subscription. My plan is to wake up and do uworld from 8am-noon. Then dit lectures till midnight. My worry is that it took me literally from 8am to 11pm to finish their first day lectures so when I include uworld then I would have no time. Any advice? I really need to pass the step can't extend it anymore so any advice will help me achieve that.

Dont watch videos, instead do USMLE Rx Flash Facts

It will let you read a section of first aid and do some flash cards to test your knowledge retention from each section

Then to solidify your info do a block of subject specific questions for that section

Farx videos, they will only suck up your time, do questions to see how the information will be asked

Trust me ive known people who have watched DIT/Kaplan multiple times and bombed Step 1
