Question DIT 1st part?

The first phase of DIT includes the biweekly email questions. (This is aside from and supposedly done before the 2-week videos + workbook.) Did you guys still do them? They're not in mcq format so it will take a while for me to answer them. I just remembered them lately and I wasn't able consider them when I first made my schedule.

What do you guys think? Are they important?

Since most people do DIT offline, i dont think anyone bothers doing these.

Everyone i know that did DIT got that "jump" without doing them.

like dr nick said, UW questions and quizzes is pretty much all the training you need

The usual recommended first nbme is form 5. They say it's the easiest.
