Smile DIT in 21 days!

Hi everyone,
A little bit about myself...
Last year, I was planning to finish my exams in order to be ready for 2012 match, but with time constraints, I ended up taking step 2 cs only and passed it in 1st attempt..I`m grateful to God for it.

Now taking step 1 in 2 months.. did FA 2 times on and off, kaplan LN once, UW 90% done..subscription ended. want to do DIT to reinforce the material.

Dr.Jenkins recommends...
3 lectures/day for 5 days + 2 days off for revision X 3 weeks= 45 lectures.
Lets do it, anyone interested... welcome to motivate one another. Good Luck.

Day 1,vid 1- just done.

Break. will come back to do 2nd vid.

Done w/ vid 2 concluding the mighty ANS .DIT makes u go thru lot of material.
Lot of distractions today..kids spring break starts, need to catch up during quiet night time.

Tamulsocin:
alpha1 antagonist used in rx BPH by inhibiting sm.ms contraction selective for alpha1 A,D receptor( found on prostrate) versus vascular alpha1 B recp.
so in a HTN pt w/ BPH---give alpha1 selective antagonists(zocins) as they have SE of orthostatic hypotension. BUT
in a BPH pt w/o HTN---give tamulsocin as it does not affect blood vessels.

@shan, @nick, @onedestiny....welcome and GL, I`ll be checking with you.

Break......will come back & finish 3rd video.

I know..Its a quite tough..What I did was ,
In the beginning, I could go through max 2 lectures a day with minimum of 25 ques.
But sometimes lectures of those topics in which you have mastery,
you can do 3 lectures in a row,

I didint take any breaks in any week, so that helped me quite...

But again Its always a good idea not to saturate yourself...

Keep it up...

Will stay tuned..

i'm doing 2 lectures a day and a block of UW every other day.
i wish i could fit the 3 lectures in but honestly by 6,7pm im exhausted.

at this rate it will take me about 24 days to complete it.
im not taking any days off.

@Drnick..I was merely quoting the educational objective given by UW...


Q NO 15: A new drug is being developed for the treatment of diabetes. This drug activates the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma),a nuclear receptor and transcription factor. Activation of this receptor would most likely result in which of the following?
A. Down regulation of leptin activity
B. Increased insulin release
C. Decreased insulin resistance
D. Increased free fatty acid levels
E. Downregulation of adiponectin

Explanation:
Thiazolidinediones (TZD5) exert their glucose-lowering effect by decreasing insulin resistance. TZDs bind to peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma), which is a transcriptional regulator of the genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. One of the most crucial genes regulated by PPAR-gamma is adiponectin, which is a cytokine secreted by fat tissue (adipocytokine). Adiponectin levels are low in type 2 diabetes which TZDs alter. As the glucose lowering effect of TZDs requires alteration in gene transcription and protein synthesis, it takes days to weeks after initiation of therapy to observe a significant reduction in glucose levels. TZDs do not cause hypoglycemia. The main side effects of TZDs are fluid retention, weight gain, and the precipitation of congestive heart failure from fluid retention.

Educational Objective:
TZDs activate PPAR-gamma, which is the nuclear receptor that alters the transcription of genes responsible for fat and lipid metabolism. Thiazolidinediones (TZD5) exert their glucose-lowering effect by decreasing insulin resistance.

Microbiology... DIT does it too fast, we cant remember like that. Iam pausing evry minute to reinforce the toxins, factors, bugs.

W/ kids at home, its becoming hard to focus. God they are home 3 more days..save me. I feel like putting the books aside & go enjoy with them and am feeling guilty telling them to be quiet,not to come near me...aggh. Anybody else feel like this.

Got to study...will come back after a break.

hey guys when you do dit, and try to fit uworld questions along with your dit days, do you take notes from the uworld questions into first aid? or do you just do questions, read the explanations, understand it and move on?

Im having a big problem right now. I know how important it is to take uworld notes into first aid but while doing dit, i barely get time for questions.

1) Am i better off doing uworld once but writing down notes into my first aid from uworld? or

or

2) am i better off not taking uworld notes, but completing that question bank two times and doing new questions from a second qbank like kaplan?

@mike
I made FA into a binder w/ 3 holes and then printed DIT workbook one side page and made 3 holes in too like FA , so after I am done with the DIT lecture(&quiz), iam adding those DIT papers to FA chapter pages....believe me ,by doing this the advantages are

1. all the pertinent information chapterwise that I need to know(DIT + FA) is in one place...so much easy to connect & revise
2. because DIT is printed on one side only, the other blankside...I`m writing pertinent UW material...just highlights. So I have all 3 materials(DIT+FA+UW) in one place subjectwise.

iam finding this a blessing to revise from all 3 sources- but it is taking time for every topic...it seems like that now but later before the exam it`ll be so much easier.

@mike
I think you should take some notes atleast imp highlighting points, differentiating clues while doind UW otherwise everything evaporates in to thin air. I finished 90% uw, w/o those imp points I would feel lost. I know its tough to do uw qs while doing DIT but iam doing offline uw few qs w/ DIT. After doing DIT, i`ll take online UW again so I can focus solely on UW. Good luck

GM....
@mike....everybody is different. To solidify the concepts... If u have the memory & time, u can do uw 2-3 times w/o taking notes in FA, for me atleast jotting down imp points helps me remeber more. I dont have time to do uw 3 times...I`m doing offline now & later will do online next month.

@onedestiny...I know what u mean...I did 3 lectures day 1 & 2 but look I made myself feel so overwhelmed that I`m taking a break today. So I think I should do 2 vid/day from 2morrow. oh...dont hate yourself, we all are in the boat.....some of them just have bigger oars. keep going.

@drhma....get on board...please update your progress here, can motivate eachother. Keep going.

Hey bro...i took an nbme 11 on sunday and failed by 10 points...it had more to do with me making dumb mistakes then not knowing the information provided...i just did it without revising my fa again so i could get a baseline and it showed...my plan now is to kill this first aid the next two weeks and take nbme 12....will post how it went

Looks like you are crushing dit, how are you liking the program?

Wow...so have to have FA almost photographed into our head.

I know what u mean abt dumb mistakes....we all do that, for some qs, the info is right at the tip of the tongue but not quite, & some times we complicate the q in our head that we end up marking the answer which looks like the right anwer but is not. we need more practice.

Go ahead buddy & crush the FA and pl post ur nbme 12 performance, good luck.

Well, Iam making sure I am definetely doing 2 DIT vids everyday. Some days I`m able to squeeze in 3rd vid. But I`m able to do only 15 qs everyday.Need to squeeze in more qs. I`m liking that I`m covering FA quickly this way w/ DIT, but not going back & revising as much than I would have liked to.

Starting day5, vid 1 now...looks like i`ve stay up till midnight.

Continue w/ DIT...your score will go up....u have more than 2 months ..plenty of time to finish DIT, qbank, revision of FA atleast 2 times & re-revise weak areas...then take nbme(11, 12, 13)...definetely will score high....keep going, no time to loose ur enthusiasm. Good luck.

alright...day 5 vid 2 done....lunch break & on to last video of day 5.

could`nt sleep well last night....could not unwind my overstimulated brain.woke up late...anyway want to finish 1st lecture of the day--day 6 vid 2 in another hour.

@drhma...9 vids in 2 days is an overkill..u can probabaly do it, but mentally its very taxing & some times information becomes volatile if gaps are not given to assimilate the information. 2nd time DIT can definetely go faster...Good luck...let me know how it goes.

Hey, are you doing the 2012 lectures or the 2011? Any idea how big of a difference there is? I have the 2011 lectures, but I'm debating whether to spring for 2012.

I'm sorry if this sounds stupid: but where do I get the DIT videos? Are they available online? Or do I need to check from a bookstore?
