Its very hard to cover the contents(of DIT) in 10 days .If u take it ,its better to spread the course for more days(like 20-30days) and take time to do Questions everyday.
10 days will be extremely overwhelming.He covers massive amounts of info in the course.

P.S I havent taken step 2 yet,but have done DIT for step 1 and step 2ck.

tyagee is right...it lacks....so you need to supplement with MTB or kaplan...I don't know how much time you have....but after each DIT section do the kaplan internal only...and ob/gyn do kaplan + MTB...

2 of my friends convinced me to switch over to DIT...after I did kaplan....but I would hands down if you can cover all of kaplan internal then definitely do it and then DIT...I don't have MTB 2 so some things....I need to go to kaplan internal...but speaking from MTB 3 it's to the point...but doesn't give you meat and explain the disease process...

DIT or any other review course is not complete by themselve.They just highlight the highest yield material.Its like spoon feeding,especially for those who lack motivation.DIT gives them structure and helps them stay focused.However supplementing it with MTB and Usmle world qbank then the package becomes complete .

As far as choosing between kaplan high yield and DIT definitely go with DIT .Dr Jenkins know the stuff ,his course is very nicely structured.Dit is very famous among AMGs
