Made this purchase after seeking advice from my English lecturer and he reccomended Collins highly. Item was about twice the size from what had expected but this turned out to be positive. A friend had purchased the smaller one a few weeks earlier but this one is much superior as paper quality and pring clarity is particulary pleasing. The colour pages and edging make this a very handy dictionary to look up quickly. I keep it under my desk at College at all times as it's always handy.

Bought this for my husband, as he requested ,a pocket dictonary for xmas. it more of a small book, than a pocket book. However, if it fitted into your pocket. There would'nt be all the words and meanings in the book. So it a nice size, husband happy.
So job done!!!! Smile

Great price for one of those things you don't want until you need it. Plastic cover is a good addition.

Good quality, did not expect it to be a bit heavy, my son starts Year 7 in Sep, this is one of the requirements...As far as I know Collins is a better brand..

not very useful really... surprised to see so many day-to-day words either missing or with such a short definition. good guild quality though.

A very handy little dictionary to have, a little bigger than what I expected but quite adequate to carry around

This pocket dictionary is light to put in my boy's school bag. Good to keep one for most secondary student.

My daughter's school asked that we provide her with a pocket dictionary and in the absence of being able to find the Oxford pocket one, I bought this one. In terms of content it is perfectly good with a comprehensive set of words, more than good enough for her senior school day to day use.
However, the only thing that I would say is that it is rather larger than I expected from a pocket dictionary. If you are looking for something that is very small you might want to consider one of the gem versions which I believe are somewhat smaller as this one is about the size of my outstretched hand and hence too big to be easily portable. She is suppposed to literally keep it in her pocket or pencil case and take it around with her and this is too large for that.
However if you are happy with the size, it is otherwise a great dictionary.
