I don't think it should matter so long as you use the latest FA to fill into the gaps.

Not much change from the older versions to the newer ones. Main difference i see is that they no longer have questions at the end of each chapter like the old notes. They opted to put those in their kaplan qbank. Other than that, same material, just new covers.

Make sure to do kaplan notes with the videos and annotate your FA with whatever you find missing.

good luck!

Hi, would also like to know the answer to this question as I am an IMG and will be taking Step 1 in 2015.
Just wondering what FA year are you using? Not sure whether to purchase the FA 2014 or wait until Dec for FA 2015.

I wanna add my 5 cents. Used very old KLN + old videos (2010, with green background). Kaplan anatomy was even older - 2006. My exam was in June 2014. Score - 253. Conclusion: if u have the fresh FA and online UW, there is no matter how old is your Kaplan.

well my idea is to start using the kaplan lecture notes with the videos and recap everything I have already done for my course in my country, then in november/december which is when the new FA comes out apparently buy it and recap everything once again before start doing Uworld. Donīt know if its a good plan but for now itīs all i got
