Default Kaplan vs. DIT for IMG's

I an IMG that is not really strong in his Basic Science. Now I understand that everyone says to do Kaplan, especially coming from a Foreign Medical School, to back up that lack of knowledge, but does anyone out there think Kaplan is over doing it?

I have 4 months till my exam

My plan:
Go through DIT 2-3 lectures/day leaving time in the day to memorize and do 46 random questions at night from kaplan or uworld. Since I have 4 months I will do this each month until my exam, so reviewing FA 4x. Of course use pathoma or golijan for pathology.

*If I don't understand something in DIT use Kaplan to reinforce the knowledge or another good source.

What do you guys think a wise decision or should I just stick it out with straight Kaplan and FA? Not trying to be lazy just looking to be efficient with my time.
