    I want to expand the memory of my MBP to 8gb, it already has 4gb, will adding a single 4gb module work??(provided it is the same clock speed as the exisiting one.

    Right now your computer has two 2gb memory sticks in it. You'd have to take one of them out to put a 4gb stick in for a total of 6gb.

    Correct. That's the configuration that most computers shipped out have.
