Default Murmurs and bedside maneuver

Dear doctors,
In FA 2012 and USMLE world Q bank they mentioned that :
1. Valsalva : Increase both MVP and HCMP
2. Rapid squatting: Decrease both MVP and HCMP
On the other hand, FA 2014 mentioned that :
1. Valsalva : Increase HCMP but decrease MVP
2. Squatting: Decrease HCMP but increase MVP
which one is right ? please explain it.
