5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 19 Nov 2013

I bought this dictionary at the first year of university and used it several times. It is really good explaining the technical terms. A year later on I still find it very useful and recommend it to everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Product Description 17 Nov 2012
By bt
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First time I've ever reviewed. Sorry to say the item description is not correct. The book I received did not have a bibliography or any appendices (those listed in the description seemed useful and one of the reasons I bought it). A bit disappointed but still a reasonable purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars A dictionary that needs a lot more definitions... go figure 2 Dec 2013
By Anthony S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this dictionary for the PE Construction test; I used it a few times to look up definitions while I was studying and I could not find any of the words (about 7-10) . Considering this is a construction dictionary, I expected it to be more thorough. Nonetheless, I decided to take it to the test and I got an answer correct on the test thanks to it..
All in all, this dictionary is lacking and needs work from the authors and publisher. Considering the price point, it may be a decent back up reference; but beware that you may not find what your are looking for when you really need it..
