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.

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.

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..

This dictionary definitely helped me out when I could not remember or had never heard of a term on the PE Civil exam. Highly recommend taking it into the exam. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
