Question Do DIT or not?

I have my exam july 22 and I have just learned about DIT is it vital that I do it? I can not download it on my internet connection as they monitor this very closely. Is there anyway someone can send me the files if they feel like I should do it? Please help, this is my third try after going through many personal issues these past couple of years (see previous threads) and have a family to support. Thank you everyone, for all of your help and support.

If your exam is on the 22nd, you may not have enough time to finish DIT. You might as well go through FA a couple more times than do DIT.
Personally, I feel DIT does not make much of a diff. It only helps those who do it early in their prep as they happen to go through FA along with DIT and hence find a diff. But for those who have already done FA thoroughly wont find DIT very helpful. Might just help you memorize a couple of new points, but that is it.

I have gone through FA three time but am going through it one more time. Thanks so much, felt very nervous about not doing DIT.

If you dont wanna feel left out, as most ppl these days prefer doing DIT, you can download the DIT handout.. basically that's got all the questions he does during the course and also the couple of extra points that he mentions. Otherwise the guy just reads out FA

You might be in the wrong forum there buddy. This is a Step 1 forum page. I am sure the step 2 forum page will be able to answer your question better.
