You probably don't need the 14th Edition of the Steel Manual, any recent one will work. I think I had the 11th Edition and was fine.

Actually,  you may not need the Steel Manual at all if you can find the subject material of those few sections elsewhere.  For the AMac section,  and afternoon Construction Section,  there are no Steel design questions on the exam. I actually brought my copy from early 2000's, and I don't think I ever even thought about using it during the exam.

OSHA and MUTCD can be downloaded for free: (you have to pay for printing out but cheaper than buying):

Another option is if you have access to a college library, find an older edition of standard copy data tables.

@youngmotivatedengineer For the AM portion, did you need any of the tables on steel properties and member sizes and strengths? I have a PDF version of the 14th edition and maybe I can just print out all the tables. Thoughts? 

@JDG Engineer Thanks. I originally planned to do that but when the local printing place was $0.20 a sheet it was almost adding up to the cost of just buying them! 

Did you guys need CMWB or ASCE 37?

CMWB no, ASCE 37 yes.

I was fotunat emy boss let me print out OSHA and MUTCD at work. 

SP-4 there is data tables in Chapters 4-7 that may come in handy. I found a copy from 1999 in a college library.

Steel Manual biggest things are beam equations (ch 3), and section properties (ch 1). Beam equations are readily available in other sources.  This site http://www.learncivilengineering.com/  has a free download of beam equation from wood design manual (NDS).
