I have the 3rd Pocket Edition.
I think it's fair to say that you may not need the newest edition, since you'll mostly be using it to look up pretty set legal terms....for the most part, an older edition would likely still be accurate

i ended up buying the 3rd edition (currently the latest). since i get massively distracted whenever i open firefox, i needed the print edition. i have to say that it's already been incredibly useful and i foresee it being a tattered, well-loved mess by the end of my law school career.

I am really glad I wound up buying a hard copy of this and ignored advice on here to just use it online. Its really nice to be able to look up words as I go through a case without having to do it on the internet. I do a lot of my reading on the train while commuting and having a hard copy makes it infinitely less frustrating (read: no connection on the train).
I guess this is a personal preference thing, but I cant see how looking it up online is more convenient than actually having the book infront of you. its worth the money, just buy it
