Kaplan Medical Kaplan changed since 2011?

2 years ago I bought kaplan lecture notes when I wanted to start my prep during that time, but had some issues that forced me to delay starting of my prep and I am starting again, I still have the lecture notes of 2011( grey colour) .. should I buy again a new series or no need and I can use the 2011 ones ? I am using them for biochem, anatomy, behavioral, immuno, biostat

They have made changes to Anatomy lectures notes.
I think it's a good idea to get the latest one's.

I know for sure that Anatomy has changed since it is a complete re-write. I am not sure about the other subjects though but I have been told that there are no major changes apart form color diagrams etc.
My advice is to use the latest LNs since you will be taking chances otherwise.
You will be spending a lot of time & effort for this test which has become highly competitive. So, spending a little more $$ will be helpful for this once in a lifetime encounter.
It's like going to war. Would you take any chances with the gear? You would go with the best you can afford since your life depends on it.

Kaplan LN are colored, recently a friend of mine found herself in the same dilemma as you, as she bought the new kaplan books she regreted it completely, i suggest to analize the books before buying them and contrasting what are the major differences if they are worth paying the whole set again.
if you have a tight pocket then rethink it. this journey is really expensive so you might as well save it for more important things.
if money is not a problem for you go ahead and buy them.
