I guess this could help you spell.
The word "college" in the title is a saddening sign of the times. It might pass in a vo-tech school or a community college, but this one isn't for the Ivy League. In fact, I wouldn't recommend it as a primary resource for even a fairly advanced middle school pupil. Simply put, it's a short dictionary with limited paper to put definitions on. The cover describes the definitions as "clear", but "concise" would be more forthcoming.
Here's a simple example of what's wrong with this dictionary:
sup-pos"-i-ti'tious [pronunciation] adj. 1, pretended; spurious. 2, supposed. Also, sup"po-si'tious [pronunciation]
My problem here is that this dictionary missed the essential difference between the words suppositious and supposititious. The former essentially means "supposed", while the latter implies intent of fraud -- which in light of the publisher's claims for this dictionary seems strangely appropriate.
