Looks like you are reading a v2 book/tutorial but using v3.
In v3 several key changes were made to Python including the renaming of
raw_input() to input().
The other big change was making print a function so you now *must* put
parentheses around anything you want to print.
print 'hello' # Python v2
print('hello') # python v3
There are numerous other small changes so it would be better for you to
either find a v3 tutorial (you could try mine! :-) or install Python
v2.7 while you are learning.
