Passive–aggressive behavior is not a personality disorder according to DSM IV criteria so it is a misprint.

There are topics in MTB 2 (e.g.Childhood disorders) which are not given in MTB 3 and vice versa. So, you will have to read from both. MTB 3 is also good for latest treatment and pearls.
If you have time it's better to read first 100 pages of KLN's Psychiatry to get a good understanding since it is a high yield subject and based on recent exam experiences you need a thorough understanding to answer questions on the real test.
Hope this helps.

I meant Step 2 CK Psychiatry KLNs not Step1 Behavioral science KLNs.
Alternatively you can use FA Step 2 CK where it is covered quite well.
