Format: CD-ROM
The electronic format comes into its own with multi-volume works. Having a 5 volume dictionary on CD ROM is much more convenient than having to juggle with bulky books [much as I love the codex!]
If you have used the Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament, you will appreciate having this up-to-date, more comprehensive dictionary. Also included with the excellent lexical entries are articles about how to do Old Testament exegesis and stimulating introductions to the theology of each Old Testament book.

NIDOTTE is absolutely essential to the proper study of the Hebrew text of the Old Testement. The key to effective preaching of the OT is starting with the Hebrew text, translating it for yourself, and understanding the breadth of meaning of the words, so their precise contextual meaning can be determined. Word studies are integral to this process and NIDOTTE is indespensible in the process. If you are a pastor and its not in your library (or you don't otherwise have access to it) you are not properly outfitted for ministry.

After using this resource repeatedly since receiving it I recommend it for those who wish to understand the fuller meanings of Hebrew and Aramaic words translated by the NIV translaters. Some times it is difficult to use an English word to capture the full meaning of a Hebrew of Aramaic word and this resource helps give the fuller meaning.

Format: Hardcover
This set has some excellent entries but a lot of the time they are very difficult to find, if it has them at all. The problem with the set is that a person should be able to find the Strong's or GK number in the index, then go to the page where it is found, & see some kind of entry. However many words are not dealt with & there is no indication of that until you go the the page & see the word skipped. Sometimes you can find a word by looking at the verse index, sometimes not. It is really frustrating to desire more information on a particular word & find out that a $100+ work doesn't even list it as being there. Each Hebrew word should have been in the entries, even if the authors felt that only a simple definition was necessary. In those cases, a note such as a "*" next to the listing in the index should be there so the searcher knows that only a definition will be found. If this had been done, my rating would be at least 4* if not higher.

I notice that most of the other reviews disagree (that's OK), but I think that for many students of Bible Hebrew, one of the good lexicons and/or the THEOLOGICAL WORDBOOK OF THE OLD TESTAMENT would suffice. The CD-ROM may be easier to use, but I am not familiar with it so can't somment.
