There is no hard and fast rule about when to do DIT.
But I recommend it since most people see improvement of at least 10+ in their score after DIT.
I will say do it after u have read FA. That would help u greatly in uworld.
But if u have finished uworld then it would be better since u would be aware of all the tricks and where facts are being tested and u would just have to reinforce them with DIT.

Ok...thanku...I will surely do it as I want to learn uworld and fa by heart...will that make much of a difference if I can use 2012 videos for DIT with fa 2014 or I need to subscribe latest one...

Well the truth is u would face the reality when they mention page .... Of previous FA but not 2014. That not withstanding shd not let u subscribe the new edition becos I think it's expensive. But if u have bucks to throw away then why not.

DIT = Doctors in Training. It's a series of lectures and some content to walk you through first aid in a more active way.

I can see why it's useful for some, but I don't have $1,000 to spend which is why I use a different program that gives me all the multiple choice and flashcards for first aid 2014.

1) İ didnt find any extra stuff. The lecturer sometimes add something but they are usually pretty low yield. Pop quizzes are b----hit. Very straightforward and not multiple choice questions

2) ı started 2012 version. İt doesnt matter tho. The concept is same. For me it is a big waste of time. He just repeats what i already know.

Thank u for saving my bucks...I was just confused cz of the glamor of DIT all around but the people who used it most of them told me exactly what you told me...yeah what is the fun of doing it if they don't tell you extra stuff...and I think i will do fa more rather than to waste time and money...thanku
