Psyche The new DSM V and Behavrioal Sciences in Step 1

Do you guys think new DSM V will affect behavioral questions on current step 1? Cause there are some drastic changes as well as new/merged diagnoses, and some of them got removed. I just dont know whether to pay some attention to that and may be even annotate my FA, or is it pointless completely.

Looking through the list on wikipedia of changes, I think its probably unlikely that they will write and incorporate new questions specifically testing knowledge of the changes in the near future, it does seem possible though that they will have to get rid of some of the old questions to which the answers (or even the way the question was worded) may not be totally correct now, or may be misleading to someone who has fully studied the new DSM...

So it might be worth paying particular attention to disorders which HAVENT been altered at all, because the questions they already had on these may now be more likely to show up in the exam...for example the personality disorders havent changed at all, so i think its a fair bet that theyre gonna be using their questions on that a bit more often now till the changes filter through
