Question DIT vs. more FA??

Sooo for the past 2 months, i've been doing kaplan videos, and reading goljan for patho. I'm taking my first NBME in about 2 weeks. I'm almost done reading first aid once and was wondering if i should start DIT or if i should just read FA again and do more Uworld questions? i don't know if DIT was too time consuming and i should spend that time on memorizing FA instead. i want to pass that NBME, so what would be better?? helpp!!

im not sure how many nbmes you are planning to do, but if this is your first nbme, it shouldnt be taken with DIT done. do DIT later before your next nbme so you can track your progress.
