No, they aren't. The tests change, and that is why the books change, to reflect the new test situations.
So, get the latest versions, just to be safe.

It depends on what you are doing. If you are unsure about going for the tests, sure, they are fine. Do some studying and see if you really want to go to the more expensive books. You can get a good understanding from some of the older books at a much lower cost. Then if you decide to continue, you can but the new books.
Also, I have never had problems with keeping out of date books around, it won't help too much with passing the tests, but they bring different areas into the spotlight and you will get a better understanding of what you are studying.

Yes go for the cheeper books first and then when your sure you can do the test as per these books you may decide to upgrade the books and go the whole test shebang!

One thing people always forget is that Microsoft in real bad at making life easy. Does anyone remember when Microsoft used to issue a complete 5 volume 5-8000 page set of reference on DOS? Now they offer a 20pg book that is basically an ad for taking their courses!

You can't go wrong with too much resources.
