I needed a small dictionary at my computer desk and bought this one. It has filled the bill for me. For quick definitions & spelling and has saved me time getting out a much bulkier, heavier dictionary. If you want a dictionary for portability, this one will work for you.
This dictionary serves my purposes to a tee. It is consise yet thorough. The only word I did not find was "conversate" which is now an acceptable alternative to "having a conversation". (Stupid word, anyway.) I am buying more for other offices. I reviewed all of the recently published compact dictionaries and Oxford was by far the best.
