Disappointing, will not be used by me...
on 11 January 2016
This is a very disappointing dictionary. I might have suspected the case from its thin size. The dictionary lists the definitions for each word (more usually, 'a' definition i.e. one definition) without context therefore you are unable to work out the full meaning and nuances of the word. This can have disastrous consequences in some cases. I would not recommend this book to anyone wishing to use even an "essential" Arabic dictionary. Imagine an English dictionary that had only one definition for the word 'condition' or 'tense'. These are real examples from the book and you would be wise to seek an alternative dictionary.
