im thinking of doing DIT too... it seems like we dont have a lot of feedback from dit for step 2... but ive heard about 2 guys in my school who prepared with dit+step up+uw for only two months after doing step 1 with terrible scores and got 99 in step 2... we are IMG's... that's the only information i have on hand... and im going for it i have no more tha 3 months to study
after february i will make a thread saying how did it go for me

Yes, they use step up in DIT, not FA... the latter is used for step1 DIT only.
I'm sorry for the late reply, but to answer your question, i found DIT sooooo boringggggg... the good thing is that he adds useful information here and there and i really like the practicing book... but, i don't know if it's worth your time since i felt like i was wasting my day, because i was trying to read as fast as the guy is reading and nothing was sticking on my head... i had to pause and go back so many times for nothing... so i ended up learning after i started to read by myself...
I recommend you to do DIT only i u have extra time couple of weeks before the test

DIT is so shallow and it doesn't give you anything in terms of concept. It is just some guy reading SUS2 and frequently making mistakes while trying to be fast.
