Easy to understand dictionary and excellent CD program
on September 10, 2007
This dictionary is very easy to read, especially for people whom English is a 2nd language, like myself. It uses very simple words to describe the new words.
The Thesaurus is right under the word, you can read it with the word without checking another section in the dictionary. It's very convenient and usable.
And the program on the CD is so easy to use. It does require you to put the CD in a CD-drive and will check for it. But what's the problem? There are many other much more expensive audio editing programs that's doing similar things.
The dictionary contains only 50K words. A little less compared to other dictionary. But this also makes it small and light enough to be portable.
I wish I knew and had bought this dictionary when I first came to the States some twenty years ago.
Highly recommended, especially for people whom English is their 2nd language.

There is an issue with the dictionary. The dictionary does not have enough words for my daily use. Sometime even my third-grader cannot find the words she looked for from her text book. This caused major inconvenience and I'm switching to Oxford.
