    had better

    Hello, are these sentences (the second ones) have the same meaning and could be equally used?

    1). You don't look very well. You'd better not go to work today.
    2). You don't look very well. You should not go to work today.
    3). You don't look very well. I should not go to work today (I would not go to work if I were you).
    4). You don't look very well. I would not go to work today (If I were you).

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: had better

    Had better is stronger than should.
