Great little dictionary! Muy bueno! Feb 26, 2009
This dictionary was compact enough to carry in Mexico w/o extra weight. Finding words was quick and intuitive, no time-wasting "see..." entries that sometimes leave you chasing your tail all around the book. This one had useful verb reference in the back, and most (not all) of the words I needed. I agree with the other reviewer, it's nicely typeset and very readable. Gets extra points for translations of alternate meanings and even includes common phrases that feature the word you are looking for. These were a very useful feature. All this is included in the main body of the text without bloating the book too much.
Only points off were for missing words - some you would expect in any such book - but it is a compact version, so it can't have everything.
Too bad I left it on the plane when I arrived in Nicaragua!
Good things come in small packages. Aug 22, 2008
It's miraculous that Berlitz managed to fit so many words into such a small, lightweight, beautifully typeset dictionary. It includes a full verb reference, too. This dictionary fits into a small purse and has become my favorite companion when on the road in a Spanish-speaking country.
