    Cumbersome, missing words, poorly organized, inadequate for advanced work

    I had not purchased a Spanish dictionary since I worked on the Masters in Spanish many years ago. The need arose for a new one after I decided to start doing free lance translation work. When I examined the dictionary in the bookstore, I checked on a few words that were not in my old dictionary and found them in this one, so I bought the dictionary. However, when I started doing the translations, which were on a short deadline to complete, I found the dictionary cumbersome especially in the case of commom words for which there are several meanings and examples. At times expressions, such as verb-prepositional phrases, which the dictionary supplies at the end of particular verbs, were missing. It would have been much much better if the authors would merely have listed at the beginning all of the possible translations for the benefit of people like myself who have an advanced knowledge of Spanish so that we do not have to review each and every example; then from there provide further detail as to when to use. This would save a lot of time.
