hello!

i'm repeating my intro psychs this semester to boost my gpa for grad school.

does anyone know if the 8th edition of the textbook (orange one) is adequate, or should i rent a copy of the 9th as well? are there very big differences?

my guess is it is sufficient. those are the all multiple-choice-exam classes, right? pay attention and take notes as needed in class and you should be fine. the textbook gives you supporting detail, and the majority of the changes made in the new edition are likely for structure or presentation rather than actual facts or testable information. between the relatively recent edition you have and attention to the prof's lectures, you shouldn't be missing out on anything.

at least, that was my experience of intro psych, working with the orange book, winter before last :)
