if you own a macbook from late 2008 to 2010 - you need 1066MHz DDR3 RAM - sometimes installing 1333MHz RAM does work - I had a late 2008 Macbook Uni - originally installed 8GB Kingston Value RAM, it worked then keyboard and trackpad stopped working - took the RAM out and installed 1333MHz Crucial DDR3 RAM and it's been working ever since.
if however, you own a 2011 Macbook - you can install the 1333MHz RAM with no issues.
now, if you own a 2012 Macbook Pro - don't even try. Might or might not work....Even if it worked - will slow down your Macbook.

to check on your macbook pro ram based on thw model, simply go to the "apple logo" in the top of your screen, check "about this mac", then goto "more info", "memory" finally "memory upgrade instruction" on the botton of memory window, and it will give detailed memories about all mac models
your model I guess DDR3 1600 GHz

no worries - we all do it - i do it myself all the time and constantly get corrected for my errors....you're doing well - read your other suggestions/answers to other post and I did not bother to reply to their questions since you're doing good.
i just pointed it out so the OP doesn't get confused.........

Your spec is; 204-pin PC3-8500 (1066 MHz) DDR3 SO-DIMM unbuffered, non-ECC (non-parity).
No idea about the PC, but it's highly unlikely even the pin count will be the same, so it would be physically impossible to install anyway.
