Any good modern edition with adequate annotations is acceptable. I have ordered The Necessary Shakespeare, edited by David Bevington, as it is less expensive (and less heavy) than a full Complete Works. You may, however use the Norton, Riverside, Signet, or Bevington Complete Works; or you may buy the plays in single volume editions.
I also strongly recommend the English Department's Writer's Guide for information about citation, bibliography and so on.
