The professor will tell you the "old" version of the textbook isn't adequate. He's lying- possibly because he wrote the text.

It really depends on what field you are studying. Our political science prof last fall let us buy an older version of the text because what he was focusing on was mainly from recorded lectures and class notes.

However, most of my criminal justice profs have required new versions of the textbooks, because depending on the CJ class, the information is constantly changing. I would imagine it would be similar for those taking some computer science classes.
