Arrow Do the reverse

You can do the reverse.

Add the extra notes in FA to your Kaplan notes.

Kaplan notes have wider thicker pages and usually includes more information than FA so doing the reverse make your job much easier.

The idea to have a single "visual" memory when your exam near. So that you don't need to review a multitude of books during the critical review times few weeks before the exam. So merging your references in Kaplan notes or in FA doesn't really make a difference, just do whatever you're comfortable with.
