  While I do think its doable I wouldnt recommend trying it.

Some days have 5 hours in video, and you need to pause these videos to do questions not to mention review a little to keep things fresh. I was able to do the course in about 3.5 weeks (24 days), that was still pretty intense and I felt like I was slowly burning out throughout.

But it also depends on what your goal is, if your shooting for 240+ doing this in 15 days with not much else isnt best. But if youre trying to pass/get in the avg range you might be able to do it. Perhaps you have better study endurance than I did. Either way I wish you luck.

DIT was a great course to get through First Aid, something I had trouble motivating myself to do on my own.

  I agree with Koobcam. I am doing it right now and one lecture saps me out and i can just about manage half of the other lecture. I read FA after his lecture is over to cover and be through with what i just did. One can do 3 lectures a day but cant get reading done of what he covered whole day. This beats the point of doing DIT. The idea is to be able to read after his lecture is over so that you are done with that topic. Have 22 days for my exam . I would not recommend doing this one month before exam. Do it a little earlier as I have so many other things to go over besides FA.
All the best.

  I am doing it these days too. I agree with others that it takes more time than it looks it should bcs of quizzes and after the lecture studying.

A suggestion is that I hear the material I already know well in fast track and where I feel I am not good I slow down the lecture. it hepls in time management a bit. Do not forget to thank me if it helps! just kidding ;)
