I currently have SQL Server Managment Studio 2008 installed. I would like to upgrade this to the latest version (which I believe is 2008 R2 SP2).

What would be the install steps to get this done?

Thanks!

you can just follow the installation wizard for upgrading.
The SQL Server Installation Wizard provides a single feature tree for upgrade of SQL Server components. You can also install SQL Server 2008 R2 side by side with an earlier version, or migrate existing databases and configuration settings from an earlier SQL Server version, and apply them to an instance of SQL Server 2008 R2.
