I don't know if its enough or it's just the format makes it harder to learn. My favorite book for Micro is Clinical Microbiology made ridiculously simple. The format of the book makes it very easy and even fun to learn micro. I would supplement that with whatever in First Aid. I didn't touch my Kaplan micro book apart from when I used it in live lectures.
