I used MTB for IM. I think it's very similar to MTB2, maybe there is a little bit more. But I didn't go through both meticulously to find the diffences, and basically I only used MTB for IM instead of MTB2 (for the IM part).
These books are all the same, just written slighly differently. It drove me crazy.... Maybe you coud buy MTB for IM and keep the MTB2 as reference (you can find the pdf online)

yea, was damn confused about that!
trying to sit and compare them both is going to be even more tedious..
but accord to u, mtb IM was more than enough to cover the IM aspect of ck, yeah?
