syllabus 2013 vs 2014

Is 2013 level 2 material much different from 2014?

I have done the two CFAI mock for 2014 and wondering whether it worths to do also the 2013 ones… or should i just practice with the questions in the official curriculum…

Thank you

Changes in the CFA Level II Curriculum from 2013 to 2014 For the year 2014, the CFA Program curriculum for CFA Level II has seen pretty significant changes from 2013. • Ethics, Quantitative Methods, Economics and Corporate Finance are pretty much exactly the same in 2014 as they were for 2013. • Three of the Financial Reporting and Analysis Readings, “Inter-Corporate Investments”, “Multinational Operations” and “The Lessons we Learned”, have been revised/updated. • Two new Readings, “Your Strategy Needs a Strategy” and “Industry and Company Analysis”, have been added in the Equity Section. • One new Reading, “A Primer on Commodity Investing”, has been added to the Alternative Investments Section • One Fixed Income Reading, “General Principles of Credit Analysis”, has been deleted. A new Reading, “Credit Analysis Models”, has been introduced. • One Derivatives Reading, “Credit Derivatives” has been deleted. A new Reading, “Credit Default Swaps”, has been introduced. • One Portfolio Management Reading, ‘The Theory of Active Portfolio Management’ has been deleted. Two new Readings, ‘Residual Risk and Return: The Information Ratio’ and ‘The Fundamental Law of Active Management’ has been introduced.
