4.0 out of 5 stars German School Dictionary
Bought for my daughter just about to start secondary school as a school requirement.
I looked at several dictionaries and found the Collins to be the clearest print.
I chose this version as it gave examples of how the word could be used in a sentence, rather than just the translation word.
I thought the sentence gave you a better understanding and helped...

1.0 out of 5 stars cheaply produced rubbish
I'm not faultng the content, it's the quality I have a problem with. Within days of use - this is a SCHOOL dictionary, remember, and we all know how heavy-handed children can be - individual pages had started to break free and fall like confetti to the ground. The binding is absolute RUBBISH. Cheap, horrible - badly made. A school dictionary - or ANY book for that matter...

Save your money and buy something else.

I chose this version as it gave examples of how the word could be used in a sentence, rather than just the translation word.
I thought the sentence gave you a better understanding and helped show you how to put sentences together, especially by giving key phrases and reiteration to aid learning. I would have liked one of these dictionaries when I was learning!

This review is from: Collins German School Dictionary (Collins School) (Paperback)
We bought a copy a few months ago from Amazon.co.uk - pages fell out as soon as we opened it so we returned it to Amazon. The replacement copy was better, but after a couple of months of very careful use, pages are now falling out of this in great chunks too.
This could be an excellent dictionary, but Collins should withdraw it from sale until they've sorted the problems.
Update: We purchased the Oxford equivalent, Oxford School German Dictionary, which is excellent - dictionary is very similar, but properly bound.
