Difference is there certainly... not as big as it was from 2013 to 2014 but still some really high yield topics n images added and also many corrections made... if u r early in ur preps.. i wud advise using 2015 but if u r already in the last 2 months... just peep thru it once and add whatever u find extra into ur 2014.. dont need to shift totally to it so late in ur prep...

It's the info on FA and the Qbanks that counts to make a difference. Videos and lecture notes aren't a big deal.

Yeah, most things are similar but they did add new images, corrected a lot of info and I think it would be better to get 2015 edition

2015 is probably "better", but there is less repetition and tying together of other facts. If you're using a bootleg of dit 2014 or whatever then obviously the pages they reference will not match the new FA. It was worth getting a 2015 for me just for the reduction in errata.
