YES! Buy the new one. I had the 2000 edition for my exam this past June, and I wished I'd waited for at least the 2001. I know the 2002 has many more color photos, much more information on leukemias and lymphomas, and several other additions that I don't remember right now. It's worth the extra money; the book's not that expensive to begin with.

So, is the 2002 edition much better than 2001? I'm planning on buying a 2001 for about half the price of the newest edition... is the 2002 significantly different/better? Also, does anyone know when the 2003 comes out?

hvitgris and Amy:

Buy the new one!

I would hate myself if I found out I missed a few questions on the exam that were covered in the most recent issue...

After all, an extra $15-30 isn't much compared to your $100K+ education.

I didn't compare the 2001 and 2002, although I heard that the 2002 has significantly more photos. Don't know about the amount of info in the text, though. If you're going to buy the 2003 anyway, then I would get the cheaper one. Otherwise, I'd pay extra for the 2002 now. It's not that expensive of a book; might as well pay $12 or so more to get the newest.
