Reviews - What do customers think about The Penguin Webster Handy College Dictionary: Third Edition (Reference)?
It did it for me Jan 23, 2008
When I was trying to find a small college dictionary on this site, I came across a few that claimed it didn't include words that they wanted to find. I always thought a dictionary is a dictionary! I was shocked to even find reviews. Well, I came across this one with no reviews with a decent price. It looked large (amount of words) enough for me yet small (convenience) enough for me. No complaints so far! I've been reading this novel that is set in the 1800s and their choice of words is quite different from what we use today...and I don't mean just words like, "midday." haha. Well, the dictionary has been useful 100%. I have found every word....some words were kind of difficult to change into the root word but I still found it!
