I only found edition 4 and not sure if that is the latest one! Are the new CS changes included in that? Please let me know before I buy it.
Thanks

Default 4th edition

4th edition is the newest edition, came out at the beginning of this year so you have the most current information. However I am uncertain if it has the newest patient note or the old version. Case wise edition 4 has all the same cases as edition 3 + a few extra. The main change to new patient notes is adding physical findings and history findings to support a differential. If you are good with understanding signs and symptoms of diseases that should be easy for you. I studied for my exam (the new version of the exam) using version 3 and CSEvideos and I passed without any problems. CSEvideos has changed their patient notes to include the new version if you are really worried about the new pt note format. Hope this helps if you have any questions feel free to ask me.
