Is there any additional advantage of doing DIT over Kaplan??.. Or is Kaplan sufficient. I have finished Kaplan once and want to know if i should do DIT too

DIT reinforces material in FA with some additional points (notes) you can add. mnemonics and so forth.

kaplan builds your foundation. Like any building, you need bricks to keep the structure strong. that is kaplan. DIT is adding an additional garage to your house. just an analogy. not the greatest one, but hey i'm a med student haha.

So if you have completed reading FA, then go for DIT if you have time. FA is your final text to learn and memorize in the end.

good luck!
