What's the difference between this book and the original PLS? The cover you scanned for your Yahoo group says it's "updated and expanded". Does this mean that the book is, in fact, an updated and expanded version of PLS (a 'software patch' of sorts) or is it a sequel?

You may try checking out the publisher's website. You could get lucky and find a "New/Modified In This Edition". If the updates look minor, then keep the book. If they're significant, ditch it.

The other fact to consider is that you're using the book to familiarize yourself with Civ Pro. If some areas have changed, so what? You'll still enter the first day with a better understanding than someone who has not prepared at all. On the other hand, if you want to be 100% versed on the subject and dance circles around the course you'll probably want the newest copy.

just my thoughts,

I sent out requests (two to professors and two to former employers) in mid-June. I expected to submit applications in October, so I assumed this would be more than enough time. Unfortunatley, none of them were returned before mid- / late- September. I ended up waiting until Nov 1 for the final letter to be mailed from the prof's office.

... to be fair, she was on maternity leave at the time, but it just goes to show: the sooner the better. If your school has a letter office (or if LSDAS will accept them this early) there's no reason not to do it tomorrow.
