"This reference has been indispensable to me as a Japanese student. I first bought it in 1999 at my tutor's recommendation and still turning to it when unknown kanji show up. Since I study calligraphy it's also useful in that context — you can nail

There are fewer radicles used to organize the kanji in this dictionary which speeds up the search a bit, and to make it easy for fans of the 214 traditional radicals there is a chart in the back to help.
Kanji can be looked up if you know there reading also using an index in the back of the book.
The onyomi and kunyomi reading are given in roomaji rather than katakana and hiragana respectively, and in my opinon, this is not a problem as long as you don't forget how to read the kana.
A good book to purchase with this one by the same authers is, "Kanji and Kana Revised Edition" and it includes the joyoo kanji set and the jinmeiyoo kanji set as well as a smaler selection of compounds (5 at the most) for each kanji. For beginners and even upper advanced students, I believe, that the book "Kanji and Kana Revised Edition" is more important and usefull, and when the two are combined it is even better. Both this dictionary and "Kanji and Kana Revised Edition" use the same set of radicles and numbers of the characters match.
This dictionary is "The Learners Kanji Dictionary", but there is also "The Kanji Dictionary" which is more expensive and contains more information. I only have "The Learners Kanji Dictionary" and "Kanji and Kana Revised Edition" and have not yet found the need to own the larger "The Kanji Dictionary."
I love this Kanji dictionary and, in my opinion, it is the best for students beginer to beginning advanced.
