I don't think that it matters on the homework problems if we use 3.0 x 10^8 m/s or a more precise value, but for the tests, I would stick to using the value that is on the constants and equations sheet.
In response to Sam's question, the speed of light in another medium (not a vacuum) is slower than the measured value of 30 million m/s. The actual number depends on the specific medium we are talking about. For example, the speed of light in water is about 3/4 the speed of light in a vacuum.
