Use both... MTB 2 for IM and MTB 3 for the rest... It will say on the outside of the book if it is for Step 2 or Step 3

i would suggest that you do what am doing. check the topics that are in Kaplan notes but not in MTB2 then cut and paste onto word doc. Me when im done Kaplan 1st reading, I will have about 200 pages of missing topics from Kaplan. The reason im doing this is because I dont want to read MTB3 and end up reading two books.
