Default FA...get 3rd or 4th edition???

The 3rd edition is half the price of the 4th edition. Is it worth spending the extra money to get the 4th or is the 3rd edition good enough???

I am unsure of the format in the 4th edition but I am asumming the pt note is written up in the new format. Ask someone to be sure. That may be helpful to see what FA says shoudl be done. But if you feel confident enough that you will know how to fill out the new patient note then 3rd will be fine. The cases are the same just that in 4th edition they have 3 extra cases not in 3rd. The key to the exam is to parctice practice practice with a partner and do it timed. Otherwise it is possible to still do well with 3rd edition. GL. Hope I helped
