I have the same situation as you do, and i have the pdf version of 2014, i havent read it through yet,only a few pages. I think there are some minor changes, but still not so much, if you need the pdf version, i can email it to you.

I used to use 2012. It has too many errors.

In my opinion, if you haven't noted anything special then switch to 2014.

Forget about FA 2012.

Not worth switching from '13 if your exam is in a month. I used '13 and had my exam in mid Feb. It's much better than '12 from what I've heard. Just be sure to check the errata:
