As a foreigner living in the UK, I am trying to constantly improve my English in order to succesfully pass IELTS exam in the future. I find this book very useful while writing my essays, correspondence, or amateur novels. Sometimes, you just can't think of the right word to express something - that's when this wonderful little book comes in handy! I would say it's one of those must-have books for English-learners. Well worth the money. *UPDATE* I received an overall grade 8.0 which means this dictionary must be really helpful :)

I got this for friend, as they are trying to improve their English. They found it very useful in expanding their vocabulary and not sounding repetitive when they are writing reports, participating in seminars or putting together PowerPoint presentations. They found the layout straight forward and the edition to be quite comprehensive. He has got a new founded confidence not just in the `delivery' of the work he does, but also his conversations are not `hemmed-in' by using the same word usage all the time.

My daughter needed some revision in this area prior to exams and found it very useful. Instead of reams of paper/exam questions this is a handy book at a great price that can be taken anywhere for quick reference or as a revision tool. Her teacher hadn't come across one before and after seeing it decided to purchase some for the library with extra funding she had available.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 27 April 2012
Plenty of vocabulary here to enlarge one's own or to use when a writer need a different way of saying the same thing. It is sensibly arranged so that a word can be found in seconds and then the reader gets several sections of slightly different meanings, each with its own synonyms and headed by a brief example of use with an indication as to which meanings are standard, informal or literary. This last feature is indispensable for a student of English who doesn't want to sound like Milton or a slang-using teenager! For example: under "see" are 10 meanings ending with "he's seeing someone else now" as "'go out with, date, take out, be involved with' and informal 'go steady with', and the dated word 'court.' What more does one need? But I have a slight niggle about the sturdiness of the book itself: it is quite fat and feels slightly as though it might come apart. I will update in a few months/weeks!

This book is an indispensable companion to anyone who wishes to enrich his or her vocabulary in their speach and writing. In its pages one can find a thorough presentation of synonyms and antonyms, as well as examples of their use. This book is for everyone who doesn't want to be just an average user of the english language.

plently of words with exampls but only drawback is clarity and enhancement of wording. it does not attract the buyer to read it with comfort.
publisher should improve this book by quality of printing and colouring the bold words

I found the approach of the compiler, who not only supplies a range of words but also annotates the different uses of the the subject word which may be relevant, a most useful one in assisting the selection of other synonyms which were not actually in the Dictionary. Overall I would recommend its aid in the completion of crosswords.

It has everything in one. Makes it very easy for you to spot the synonyms and opposites. Bought it for my 7 year old and he is learning a lot.
