Do I really need the newest editions?

    No, you do not need the latest editions of these items.  I used mine (from 00-05!) and have been fine.  The only items that are critical to be current would be the Building Code information you study, whether from the actual IBC, or from Building Codes Illustrated.  Currently, NCARB is testing on the 2015 IBC.

    Same question

    The current edition of MEEB is 12.  I have 8th.  this was from back in like 1993.  Is anyone familiar with the difference in content between the two?

    @Joseph I think for MEEB and similar books, you'd want a more current edition.  MEEB 12 goes into sustainability and systems that might be more advanced than in 1993.  You can rent it from Amazon, and other sources.  There are also e-book versions, but that makes it a little bit harder to flip through.
