Default Which USMLE Step 1 Kaplan Lecture Notes Books to Avoid?

I am looking to start Step 1 prep soon. I will aim to use only one book per area, with as many KLN as possible as I find them easy to revise from. I will be aiming for a 90+ score and honestly I don't think I can be one of these people who score extremely highly and certainly will not be able to have the same number of hours per day I can study for as many people due to various external circumstances. So I guess please choose the books that give the best mix of High Yield stuff.

What I am trying to find out is, which areas can I use KLN, and which areas the KLN are not so good, so I should use a different book.

So, if you guys would be so kind, I would like you to choose which KLN books that are NOT the best book to use for Step 1 revision, and if you choose an area to NOT use Kaplan in.

And remember, I will in some cases not be looking to study every little minutiae of detail in every area, I am not going for a high 99 or anything like that (wouldn't be able to achieve even if I tried), so I'm looking to learn all the high yield stuff extremely well.

Many many thanks for the help.

This poll should be seen by the Kaplan people, so that they know where did they suck!

Yeah, that's another thing I should have specified, if you assume I have very little basic science knowledge, are Kaplan enough or do you need other textbooks?

I think there's nothing to be left from KLN, all subjects are covered very well.
