First Aid First Aid 2008. Too old?

As the title says, is the 2008 version too old? Are there any sites that let you know what changes have been made between each edition?

They are changes. If you can buy 2011 that will be better idea.
I have 2010 and 2011 and theres some changes between the 2.
At least download 2010, some people have it in PDF.

Cool

I think it is better to get the new one, FA 2011. They revise it every year and add new, high-yield stuffs. Also there are more acronyms and concepts to help consolidate important facts into memory. Moreover, I think you should not take chances by reading an old version of the book when there's a new one available. Good luck!

For this important exam, i would recomend not to waste your time like that. I got the 2009 and 2011, they are wayyyy too different, so you better go for what is considered wise ... which is go and buy the 2011... =) you will not regret... =)
