Question Starting USMLE World with DIT!

Hey guys... I'm going to start doing "DIT". When is supposed that one should start doing the "UW" questions along with "DIT"?

I think that you should start doing 1-2 blocks per day of UW random timed, with each day of DIT, you can see your progression in the score as you go through DIT, if you are scoring 75% and above in UW already, dont expect much to any change.

1 block takes about 1 hour it's revision usually takes about 30-60 min.

I Think that UW can be done in one month with 24 days to finish all questions (thats about 2 blocks per day) and few more days to cover all the wrong and marked questions.

I personally have finished my UW today and thats 10 days before my upcoming exam as you can see i left few days to cover all the wrong things.

Thank you for the advice. I forgot to mention: This will be my 3th time doing UW and I want to do DIT in 16 days. (Exam is on July/31)...

I think UW 2nd time is good.. you should go for it (However, don't mind the score, just Qs and concepts).
