Should I purchase the 2nd edition or just stick to the first one? Any info on this is appreciated, thanks!
The second edition has a few more questions added to each chapter. Besides that, they are identical. I worked through both books (one during the pathology course) and one during board preparation and found them to be virtually identical. Hope this helps!

I recommend buying the second edition, if you haven't already bought the first edition. It has about 20% more questions, it has a final exam section in the back which the first edition doesn't have, and the multiple-choice question format is improved and more challenging. I also think that the second edition includes a few more color photos.

Did they actually change any questions?

Overall, the cover says 1200 questions as opposed to the 1st edition's 1100. $40 for 100 questions is a tough sell unless they spiced up the old 1100 with some new ones.
