USMLE Books BRS Physiology 5th edition versus 4th edition

Does anyone know if BRS Physiology 5th Edition differs significantly from 4th edition??. I have the 4th edition and i wonder if I should get the 5th.

The new edition has more colorful figures and nicer tables and online access to the ebook. It's better than the fourth edition and you should get it.

In general with the BRS series, the new editions are better than the older ones... Physio as well. I recommend a thorough read of the topic to ensure that you master the concepts...

No no, there are enough qbank physio questions to fill in the blanks. This is in case you were going to start new...
