I have 2012 DIT and 2013 FA..
I want to complete DIT in 10 days..
Please tell me how many videos i have to see daily or how many pages of workbook i should do....

I highly suggest you get a 2012 FA or get 2013 DIT, which ever is easier for you, but you need your DIT version and FA version to match or you're gonna have a hard time keeping up, especially if you wanna rush through it. Its gonna be a pain in the ass when they tell you "turn to page 138 in your 2012 FA" and that same page is actually page 163 in your 2013 FA and you have to now manually look for it. It will waste a lot of time. So try to make sure they match.

As for completing it in 10 days, the program was originally made to be completed in 15 days. Yes you can technically complete it in 10 days, but I would suggest you take 15 days because the videos will run pretty long and you will realize that going through the 3 videos per day they suggest will take up almost your entire day so adding extra on top of your day while doable will not be practical.

Long story short: Make sure your DIT year and FA year match. I suggest you take 15 days to do the course and only cram it into 10 days if you are SUPER dedicated and able to study non stop all day, and only if you have absolutely no other choice (i.e. your exam is in 11 days so u have no choice but to complete it in 10).

Best of luck to you.
