This dictionary is wonderful for looking up words as you hear them! I've only found a few discrepences in translation from one language to the other but this may be due to the author's venacular/dilect compared to my professors'. However, it's frustrating to find words when reading if you are reading and unsure how to pronounce the word because everything is phonetic on the Farsi/Persian side. Overall this book has become somewhat of a study bible for me, I highly recommend it.

For something called a 'Learner's Dictionary,' this book is missing quite a bit of basic vocabulary, simple words like 'try' etc. On the other hand, it includes a lot of vulgar and militaristic and political language which, although very interesting, no beginnner needs to know. It glosses nouns without glossing related verbs. It's hard to determine proper usage. There are very few 'pointers' to guide the beginner. It really needs to be fleshed out a lot more. My Persian friends and I have been nothing but disappointed with its use.
