No difference to be at a disadvantage. The books are barely updated and give the false feeling that they are. Have some friends I asked who have all 3 editions of mtb 2/3 and very little do the get updated. They added some algorithm which already in uwolrd and some useless obgyn pictures which you can find in uworld or anywhere else.

Many reviews on amazon giving 5 stars are fake.

MTBs ok for some basic structure. Be careful on management in the mtb 2 and mtb 3. mtb 2 will say one way to do it, m2b 3 says something else. This is issue in latest edition of both even.

Uworld is all the management and treatment because mtbs are not all correct, not everything in mtb is wrong but there are many things scattered.

I tried mtb 2/3 but found review books not that helpful for ck. There are no good books for ck so some buy mtb because of that.

Don't believe all new exam experience on usmle forums where posting new and saying mtb is the secret to passing or high score exam experience.

Buy if you want but you will see what a waste of money it is to get new edition. Or buy from all the used ones already on amazon because nobody wanted it after buying new.
