I bought this dictionary as a gift, choosing this one because of it's "pocket" size feature and being quite cheap.
After receiving it, I was very surprised at how simplistic this book is, and is quite big for being "pocket size". I have a different brand of pocket dictionary of another foreign language that is quite small and use very religiously. This Tagalog one pales in comparison to what I used and what I was expecting.
There are no pronuciation explanations, as I guess they assume you know how to pronounce the words already. But then again, reading Tagalog is pretty straightfoward, as opposed to trying to read, say, Chinese or Russian, where the characters are totally different. But you wouldn't even know where to accent the syllables either...
A total for 88 pages with 44 pages devoted to each Tagalog - English, and English - Tagalog. I guess you get what you pay for. And I'm not paying this much for this book. I'm returning this one!
