This dictionary is for people who already know how to read Hangul script.

The words are arranged according to the Hangul and not by the romanized pronunciation of a word.
(Hangul/romanized word/meaning).

I find it practical and that's why I take it with me everywhere. ^^'

I really wish it didn't have romanization next to the hangul characters. I just learned the characters and know mostly how to read them, but my eyes just go towards the romanized words. It's not too bad, it's just that it would be better without them. Good for someone who still doesn't know all the characters.

I purchased this book for my daughter a couple weeks ago, and she's been using it up! She finds that it has all the vocabulary she needs to help her in high school. It has references in Hangul as well as Romaji, which makes it easy to find words.

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,

I like this Dictionary. It has a sufficient amount of words used in everyday situations. The print is small, but visible. As a beginning learner of Korean, this dictionary suits my current needs. I like it.

You basic dictionary.
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 dictionary is decent. I picked it mainly because the words are kept in hangul in the korean section so it is much quicker to find what you need. I think that it is a bit slim, but probably one of the better Korean dictionaries out there. There are still loads of words that I can't find, so I would recommend this book for people who aren't studying Korean at too high a level or need it for complex articles or books.

I would have given 4 or 5 stars had this dictionary been twice or three times as extensive. I like how the Korean language portion of the text is 'alphabetized' by Hangul characters. The other Korean-English dictionary I had purchased (and later returned) ordered the Korean definitions using the Romanized versions of Korean words. For example, you would have to look up ramyeon, rather than 람연.

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.

This is a nice dictionary, but it is limited by its size. I have gotten a bigger one now, as I was coming across too many words that were not included.
