"The prior edition is my most favorite dictionary for my own reference and studies. I bought a copy for every computer I use -- at work and home -- and have several hardback copies as well. For me, this dictionary is very easy-to-use and gives me full and complete definitions. When I need to look up a word with an obscure usage or special idiom, I can find it in this dictionary 99% of the time without having to resort to an unabridged dictionary." R. L.
"This College Dictionary is one that has by far the best roots and synonym studies of any Dictionary of the college level that I have seen. It gives Sanskrit roots that are in many cases quite wonderful.
This dictionary has enabled me to communicate to others in a positive and certain way like no other. I use many dictionaries, but this is the mainstay for me."   F. Z., Los Angeles, California
