Is there any difference between the 2nd and 3rd Edition of Saunders?

I went through a couple of chapters of the 2nd and 3rd edition and they were the same...I understand when they come out with new editions there are changes mayb not a lot, but there are some...the CD mayb is the difference...I don't know can someone answer this for me.. :) Thanks

The reason I ask this question is because I want to do Suzanne's Plan, but have the 2nd edition of Saunders PN, money is soooo tight right now I cant even afford the new edition...

When new editions come out it usually means they have updated stuff like new format questions. I personally would use the up to date stuff if I aim to pass

I have the third edition and just got the fourth edition. If nothing else it makes me feel better knowing that I have the up to date version.
