I am not sure about the changes between the books. I'd say what it comes down to is, how much have you annotated in your FA? If you have hardly used it at all, I would get the new one. If it is heavily used, keep using yours...
Hope that helps!!
Btw, are you from Switzerland by any chance?

not too many changes.

It seems that they just added the explanations and diagrams from USMLE rx express and usmle RX qbank to their book. Both which i have previously used.

I bought the 2014 book but am using my annoted book (2013 edition) instead since i have fully annotated it.

the choice is yours though. If your exam is during the middle of the year, maybe get this book since you will have to annotate from scratch and get acquainted with its format compared to your 2012 edition.

hope that helps.

good luck!
