Default Has any International Medical STUDENT given Step 1 without using Kaplan Lecture notes?

and succeeded?

I have tried searching but I can't find any thread or experience of a foreign medical student that didn't use KLN. You mostly find medical graduates experience, instead, that all endorse Kaplan.

I am currently a student, too. In second year to be exact and I plan to give Step 1 by the end of third year, and I know it's doable. (I can't wait till after graduation because of some reasons.)

I just wanted to know if it can be done w/o KLN? I read a post here about two different methods of preparing (one w/ KLN and the other w/ different board review resources). But you couldn't find anyone claiming to use the american student's method and being successful :/

I don't like the lecture notes format so I stick with different sources when just reading through w/ my coursework.

Can someone tell me if I am (or not) being an idiot by using different resources?

P.S. I am really, really sorry if this has been asked before. I didn't find anything exclusive so I posted a thread.
P.P.S Sorry if this is a dumb question, I am just really stressed is all.
