Question do you HAVE to read FA before doing Doctors in Training (DIT)?

hey,

I am trying to figure out if it's necessary to read through all of FA before doing the DIT lectures. I was hoping that the videos would be a good way to first get through the FA book and then read it again with the notes i'll prob put in it. I have already gotten through the Kaplan lectures so I should have a decent base.

also, if anyone has seen both....would it be better to use DIT 2011 or 2012 if you could choose? the format for 2012 seems a little confusing

my study plan is: kaplan/uworld and DIT/FA...is this enough?

any help would be greatly appreciated. this whole process is freaking me out.

in anyway , but give a simple rough read FA before DIT is better way i think . then abt what version to use , i think better use version that match wth yar FA version too . i meant year edition . is that enough ? no direct answer here , but theoreticaly i can say is enough by considering only positives in yar reading and plan , but to know exactly is that OK or u need more practice questions from another Qbnaks may be , then after all done u mentioned above , do NBME and see where you stand . and from that point answer for yar question can be very easy answered by yourself

Do you HAVE TO - no? So we're assuming you've never touched First Aid.

Most important is doing the open ended quizzes/workbook while doing the video series - that's the big positive about that series the open ended quesions and quizzes. F.A. book references are made throughout the lecture series' and workbook.

But, why not? If this is going to be your first exposure to First Aid, why not do it alongside DIT - there's no perfect method of acquiring knowledge, use the First Aid book as a companion.

I think of the video series' that are out there - one of them makes references to FA 2010 pages by pg #. The other makes references to FA 2012 pages.

So if you're going invest your time in watching that entire series, don't do it without the workbook and get the edition of First Aid that accompanies it.
