How crucial is it to have the 2nd ed.? Will it be difficult to follow the teacher's guide if I don't... How different are the editions?
I'm not sure many folks have had both editions in their hands to compare? I used the old edition and enjoyed it. Pluto was in limbo at the time and eventually became a nonplanet, although I have recently read that it may become a planet again (I don't think Pluto, itself, has changed LOL.) Anyways, I haven't been able to look through the newest one yet to compare.
The MFW website says this, and it doesn't sound like big changes to me?
