Question Does DIT cover close to 100% of the step 1 material?

Hi guys,

I'm going through DIT lectures as a way to go through FA in depth and clarify some of the difficult concepts.

Do you think that his added content serves to complete the material where FA is lacking?

Thanks

Thanks!

That's what I plan on doing (Goljan and pathoma) + UWorld questions obviously.

Do you think it might help me accomplish my task of a 240+ score?

Thanks

Hi Danny,

I haven't taken the test yet so I'm no expert. I found it really useful to do DIT video and follow along with the study guide and do questions. The videos give you time to do all the questions and then go through it.

Hope this helps.

There are much more better and approved sources out there. Why DIT? I think ıt does not cover.
