Getting Certified For NASM

Just had a quick question. I am looking to start studying for the NASM certification and was wondering if it really matters what edition textbook you get? I believe the more recent one out there is 2013 and i was wondering if a 2011 or 2010 edition would make that much of a difference? Thanks!
