First Aid Should I get new first aid 2012?

Dear experienced test takers/form users...
I am currently taking notes in my 2011 first aid. I will be writing the exam Feb of 2012. Is it worth it to get the new first aid and transfer notes into them?

I don't think that's a good idea.

FA 2012 will be out in December, by then you shouldn't be looking at new pages, you should be just reviewing what has engraved your mind.

Stay with your FA 2011.

They don't make super changes anyway. Big part of it is just marketing, trying to fool us that there's something new.

It's only 5 months left before your exam.
You shouldn't be switching books at this time.
I think you should continue with your 2010 edition.

Again, there isn't many changes in 2011.
