Not Set Up Well Dec 18, 2007
For whatever reason, this book is not user friendly. When looking up a word, the book will refer you to ANOTHER WORD.....I don't understand the style this dictionary has. It is USELESS and lacking definitions for TONS OF WORDS.
STICK TO YOUR OLD DICTIONARY. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT.
