I've been seeing DIT a lot. What is it exactly? Is it just video review or does it have a question bank to go a long with it?

DIT is Doctors In Training, and it has videos that walk you thru FA using their workbook and quizzes to supplement FA. No question bank though unfortunately. Its pretty tough to get thru in less than 20-30 days unless all you do is the videos...meaning no real time for extra reading or supplementing and no real time to complete UW or Qbank. I guess it maybe COULD be done in under 20 days if you only did DIT and were good enough with the material that you didn't need to take much time for the quizzes or slow the videos. They certainly tell you it can be done with "X" number of videos per day! But wow.....

Thank you! I've done FA twice already and have half of UWorld left. Do you think DIT will be beneficial?

DIT videos are so boring they put you to sleep . I tried them. All they do is read FA out to you.

Yes, they are a little boring at times...but that happens at points with any review course. What else can you expect lol?! The material can be tedious whether reading it solo or going along with DIT. I found DIT helpful for some topics, not so much for others. For me, I think it was mostly whether or not I jived with the lecturer. Boring and tedious aside, it helps you to get thru the material even when you're struggling to studying on your own - and the quizzes help to keep it relatively interactive. I found the quizzes to be the most helpful in increasing my scores! They add time to your schedule each day but they do encourage a lot more instant recall than most other review courses! Hope that helps!
