Kaplan Medical How important is Kaplan for CK?

While we all did Kaplan really well for Step 1, a lot of seniors (especially those who recently took the exam) keep telling me to skip Kaplan and do MTB, FA, QBanks and UW. I just don't feel like rushing through Kaplan, even though I have only three months. (Just got my Step 1 score last week, 245) Do you guys agree that it should be done quickly, or perhaps not be done at all so our main focus should be MTB and UW?
Thank you for your help!

Although I did not receive my score, but I think no need to give Kaplan a lot of time. Do IM & Gyne twice, and the rest 1 time is enough. UW is MUCH MORE important.

thank you
I did not study MTB, so I don't know about it. I used only Kaplan and UW
But I said study Gyne/obs twice because I find them very difficult to remember and easily forgotten
