I had used the 2nd edition of Cambridge Dictionary software for nearly 10 years. I bought the 4th edition because a lot of words were not included in the old one. The GUI is not much different. Every word is explained clearly with examples. Actually I just need the software to run on my computer but they don't sell it separately. The hardcover version looks very good anyway.

The book was in almost perfect condition. The glue that holds the book spine and pages together was not intact when I received the package. The CD-ROM will not load on the new iMac computer either but it did load just fine on my HP PC laptop. I took my iMac and the cd-rom to the Apple store and they said the cd-rom is mis labeled because it is not compatible with the iMac. But the dictionary is a good one.

Exactly what I was looking for. The book and the CD are very good for advanced learners of English. Only one thing about the CD: The sound of the American English pronunciation does not sound quite American in my opinion; but I can make allowance for a better judgment.

It is one of the best dictionaries for learners that I have seen
so far.

The CD-ROM does not work with Linux.

The number of entries is not mentioned. The 140 000 figure quoted
for "words, phrases, meanings, and examples" is not relevant.
If a word is not mentioned at all, it does not matter how many meanings
and variants another word has.

My quick estimate is that it has about 60 000 entries, which is relatively
small, but I wish CUP would come up with a figure of their own, entries,
not words, so that we can make meaningful comparison with other products.

It does make up in other areas, though. For example, there is systematic
usage advice and I like the list of common mistakes too.

The phonetic symbols are repeated on every page, as a footnote
(they look like the IPA or close), that's useful.

I'd rather go without the visual dictionary plate section in the
middle, in the middle of the 'L' chapter, or have it at the back,
but I guess that could be useful for some learners (though an advanced
learner may not find many words/pictures there).

The hard back book opens well and has traditional signatures (sections),
i.e. good quality binding, not a cheap glued one.
