Kaplan Medical Do we need Kaplan for Step 3?

I just took my ck 2 weeks ago.
I'm thinking about starting prep for step 3. How necessary is it to read Kaplan for step 3?

If you have read Kaplan Step 2 CK Lecture Notes then you don't need Kaplan Lecture Notes Step 3 as they are the same.

My personal opinion is this;

Step 2 CK score > 230 then you need only USMLE World for Step 3
Step 2 CK score 200-230 then you need a book + 1 qbank
Step 2 CK score < 200 then you need a book + 2 qbanks

Provided that less than 12 months have passed since you took the CK, if more than 12 months then you probably need to work more than the options listed above.
