    Very useful!

    This dictionary is especially great for students who have difficulty with spelling. It lists just the correct spelling of each word and its pronunciation.

    The multiple definitions, sample sentences, etc. in other dictionaries is, of course, valuable information--but navigating through so much information can be slow and discouraging for poor spellers. My students who struggle with spelling usually keep this book on top of their desks for easy reference all year.
