I noticed that Vanguard updated one of my prospectuses. I read them but I don't know what to look for. It's not like they come with a "diff" that shows me where they've updated them. What do you look for in a prospectus?

I like reading the annual reports. You can find out what's actually in the funds and what the expenses when to. Unnecessary for a Vanguard fund, but interesting to me. But expense ratio and all the other important stuff for Vanguard's show up on their summary pages on the website.
