I did DIT step 2 it is not as good as it was for step 1 but good enough .However it gives u a false feeling that u remember stuff ,in fact few days after watching videos u r most likely to forget many things that were taught .

If u want to skip kaplan do a quick review of everything ,then DIT step 2 is very good .However it should be clubbed with lots n lots of questions coz Step 2 is about concepts and not rote memorization .

Kaplan videos are tooo long .Do it if u have time .i like DIT better coz it makes u revise large amount of syllabus in a short time .after step 1 i am having kind of ADHD so i like a quick review ,so that i can go on with Questions.
I would say try both of them (since u r downloading ) and make a plan that suits u.everyone is different and i havent taken the test yet .
