The words are arranged according to the Hangul and not by the romanized pronunciation of a word.
I find it practical and that's why I take it with me everywhere. ^^'
The English side has pronunciation guides in English, as well as the Hangul definition. It is the most useful tool for transitioning from one language to another I've found in the US,
Light weight (though could be lighter) and small size makes it convenient to toss in your bag and take with you to a cafe for a study session.
Haven't had a problem with the contents yet. Helpful Introduction as well.
This Hippocrene version makes it simple to find Korean words written in their Hangul characters. However, it is not at all an extensive dictionary.
For example, there is only 1 page (double-sided) dedicated to this character, Lieul, ㄹ, although I'm sure there are many words starting with this character actively used in Korea today.
I'm translating favorite Korean songs and phrases my native Korean language partner uses into English and find that there are many Korean words I can't find in this dictionary.
So the usefulness of this dictionary to translate Korean text into English is very limited. To call this a 'standard dictionary' is an exaggeration. A dictionary is useless if I'm constantly resorting to Google Translate to supplement it.
