It generally agreed upon that First Aid for the CK is not as good as for Step 1 and Kaplan notes are much more useful.
Have a look at this poll to see the comparison

I personally recommend that you read Kaplan notes only for CK.

I read only Kaplan notes and my CK was 99.

Also have a look at this poll

Kaplan + UW + a bit FA= >97 (but you have to understand & memorize not memorize only )
