Kaplan Medical Do we need to read Kaplan Notes more than once!

I have read Kaplan notes 1x and read MTB 1x as well done with 50% Uworld (only the IM questions though)

My question is do people actually read kaplan more than 1x, cuz i really am finding it useless (unlike step 1 where you needed it to understand physiology and neruoanatomy, etc.) im thinking MTB with your past knowledge of step 1 and Uworld(atleast for IM) is enough. Also do people get a feeling that you know only IM and start to forget other subjects like Obs/Gyn, Surgery and Peds?

Not sure hence im asking is Kaplan worth a second read and is someone in a similar situation?

i have read almost all the subjects once and now am just going thru it quickly. i feel once you have read kaplan once its much easier to go thru them once again and very quickly just concentrating on the stuff that u dont know or not mentioned at other places.

I just started to solve UW, done only 3 blocks ... its too early to say, but from these 3 blocks, I found that IM questions have nothing to do with Kaplans ! I found most peds/gyne questions mentioned in Kaplan, but I started to think that Kaplan IM is a waste of time
