    Looking for good study material.

    I am looking to get a good book to help me study for the ABO exam. I need something all encompassing.
    Any suggestions?
    The optician I am apprenticing under recommended Systems of Ophthalmic Dispensing. My question about that one is does anyone know if there is a big difference between the 2nd and 3rd editions? I can save a lot of money if I get the second one but I want to be sure that it will be current enough to help me with the test.
    Thanks

    FWIW - I just noticed on the OpticianWorks Facebook page that he is offering a $10 off Xmas deal.
    This would be the time to get studying.

    Thanks for suggesting https://opticianworks.laramyk.com/. It helped me a lot. There are tons of research papers out there that can be used as great reference material.
