I don't think so. I think you will cover the updated material with the latest FA and the uworld explanations (that's what I'm doing) but if you have the resource and just started go for it and get them

I've used the red cover books (I think they're 2013) and I'm on the dark blue 2016 lecture notes. I would say it's around 97% the same. Some editing work has been done. Like mcq's pushed toward the end of the book instead of chapter wise (in micro) some minor corrections in physio. Pharm is basically the same. Haven't checked out anatomy (no time) but I'm guessing it's going to be about the same.
Biochem is 100% the same too.
