How do you know whether to use the exponential decay 1st rate law or the regular integrated rate law? For example, in the 6th edition 15.25.

It doesn't matter since they are just different versions of each other and you will get the same answer either way. It really just depends on what you're solving for (one version may be easier to use) or personal preference.

What is the exponential first-rate law?
