Listening Pursuig DIT or study partner

Hello everyone

I have begin my USMLE study as I plan on trying to get through everything at least once while using the First aid and vaarious sources (e.g. Physio - BRS, Neuro - High Yield, Path - Pathoma, etc). I read the sources then put them into my First Aid. Along the way I do practice Questions.

However I finish my first read, I was thinking about either doing DIT 2012 or to study with a partner going through FA. I dont know if I can do both as I may be pressed for time. Which one is the better idea: study with partner or go through DIT 2012?

I have even heard DIT tells stuff that is on the USMLE which is not found in First Aid or even Uworld? Is this true? Tell me what you all think about DIT for those who have used it, Thanks in advance.

I'm on Day 12 of DIT. I am done my studying and will be doing Step in 1 month. I am finding DIT helpful, however I find that you need to know your stuff before doing DIT. I don't think Brian Jenkins does a good job of explaning. He does however point out things that you may not necessarily have noticed or thought would be HY.

Use DIT. If you have a local study partner too that is great but don't waste all ur time with him or her and don't let him/ her stress u out. Local partners make be ur source of encouragement etc but remember this forum is helpful in that as well.
