    Not bad and very portable.

    When I picked up this dictionary, I had LOTS of Latin terms to look up. It did have some of them, but it didn't have others. However, its small size allows me to easily carry it in addition to my other books. Overall, it's certainly not horrible as far as dictionaries go; it still may be necessary to consult an online/university's Latin dictionary, but this little book can hold its own at least 75% percent of the time.
