Default Is it a 2010 FA too old to be used for step 1 2012?

I've been wondering if a 2010 FA is consider to be too old? I think that is almost all the same with the 2011 one, and since I've heard that the 2012 edition with the 2011 one did not changed that much, what do you guys think about it?

How old does a FA has to be to be considered an "old" FA?

I'm also using 2010, it is just that I started reading the "errata" and it looks like a lot of mistakes going on in there. I've also writen some notes inside my FA, so I'm not thinking in buying myself a new FA. I'm just wondering if it is too old to use it, if the change is too much, then I think that I'll have to come up with a plan "B".

What are the 1200 tested facts in FA??? Where is that???

I remember ebstein anomaly for one, It's mention in 2011 but in not 2010.

Anyway, check the reviews here, it may help you:

Thank you... I feel so dumb. It looks like I'll be in charge of getting those 100 facts by myself.

Here I give you the link (safe, nice and clean... perfect)

Are you using the book or the PDF file??? I think that you have to read the review for the 2012 in Amazon (link is above), because after reading the review, I decided that I'm going to stick to my current FA (I will improve it by using UW and my other books). I do not know about 2009, you can check the link that I left above and check the "errata", see if there are too many mistakes and think about it... Let me know what do you think.

I've used 2010 since it came out, and I even bought 2011 which I don't even use when I do questions. I prefer 2010 because it has less errors and I recognize it easier since I've used it for a very long time.
