Help Starting CK Prep, Advice?

Hi everyone,

So I took Step 1 two weeks ago, thought I'll start preparing for CK early so that whatever I remember from Step 1 might help (if I haven't forgotten it already lol). This is what I've gotten so far,

Kaplan videos and LNs
MTB 2
MTB 3

I've been kind of leaning towards getting FA but everyone is saying it's probably not worth it. After using so many resources for Step 1, this just feels like too little. I'll get UWorld after I've finished one read of Kaplan. Will this suffice?
I think I'm just being overly loyal to FA because I am itching to buy it. Lol

Thanks for the help
