I think its a must for IMG's unless you were taught with an American based curriculum. That being said, Kaplan Lecture notes/ videos teach you with fundamentals and concepts most commonly tested on USMLE and give you information more related to the US. For example, RABIES in US is most common in Racoons but in most of the other countries it is Dogs. Also, the behavioral and ethics section will be helpful as it is specific to standards in US. Its things like those are quite helpful.
