I needed this for a diction class and the french and italian dictionary have the IPA for pronunciation but the german one does not ! I had to return and search through many to find one with the IPA. The Webster New World German one is only good for native German speakers who want to learn English.
My book came in the condition that they described and was quick to ship! Very happy!
I got this book to help me translate German records for genealogy, since I do not know a thing about the German language. I think this book is simple and clear and it has been easy to find the words that I am trying to find. I have not used it enough to know how comprehensive it is, but so far I have been happy with it.
Don't buy this dictionary if you don't already know some german especially german grammar and the genders of nouns. Often this dictionary fails to flag slang where it might be found, but other that this is an excellent dictionary with most every word you could possibly think of. Sometimes I sit reading it and it translates things that I don't even know in English. It's quite in-depth.
