I personally liked DIT, because it almost forces you to go through first aid at least once. The study guide of DIT is pretty good, it has quizzes and additional information (granted some of the information is not useful, but some of it is vital). I know there are mixed opinions on DIT, but I would recommend you do it once. And since you have done FA 3 times, going through DIT won't take that long for you. Try to do it in around 10 days, instead of 15. And after that take a NBME and see where you stand. It will really help you memorize some things in FA that you might have missed the first 3 times you did FA on your own. Good luck!!

If you are not lazy to read FA(which I believe you are not)don't waste time on DIT.you will learn more reading FA again on your own than wasting 3wks on DIT.He only reads FA and infact, tell you some important stuff in FA are not important but you will find them being tested in nbme.I wasted prescious 3wks on that clown.it's highly overrated!you absolutely learn nothing new.

Do like 3 random videos,if you can't answer their quiz that means you don't know FA well enough...only then will it help you but if you know FA,pls skip DIT.
