5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB 26 Dec 2008
By Nebojsa Kostic - Published on Amazon.com
TO MY MIND YOU SHOULD HAVE TWO DICTIONARIES IF YOU ARE LEARNING ENGLISH:
"LONGMAN DICTIONARY OF CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH",THE OTHER ONE SHOULD BE
"OXFORD ADVANDCED LEANER'S DICTIONARY". THEY ARE CURRENTLY THE BEST DICTIONARIES FOR ERVERYONE WHO WANTS TO IMPROVE HIS/HER ENGLISCH KNOWLEDGE.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT DICTIONARY 8 April 2011

I have been using for many years an old version of LONGMAN dictionary and I have been very satisfied with it. That's why I decided to buy a LONGMAN dictionary again. This last version is an excellent dictionary, especially for advanced learners. The included CD contains a lot of useful features with a user's friendly menu. What I like most from this dictionary is that it distinguishes thoroughly the use of each word between American and British English as well between written and spoken English
