4.0 out of 5 stars School German
I bought this for my son as he has started to learn German in school, its fairly strong and light book which means its not to bad to carry around.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I bought this dictionary to replace my 1997 compact Oxford-Duden, which has come to pieces with use. I am translating a short story from German to English (not a particularly difficult story) and found that this dictionary is entirely useless for this kind of work. Its vocabulary is very limited and concentrated on immediately modern and day-to-day "useful" translations...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 26 April 2012
This review is from: Oxford Essential German Dictionary (Paperback)
I bought this dictionary to replace my 1997 compact Oxford-Duden, which has come to pieces with use. I am translating a short story from German to English (not a particularly difficult story) and found that this dictionary is entirely useless for this kind of work. Its vocabulary is very limited and concentrated on immediately modern and day-to-day "useful" translations. It has virtually no synonyms. I found myself looking up words on line rather than in the dictionary. it isn't simply the fact of it being a pocket dictionary. The 1997 Oxford-Duden was perfectly adequate for reading Thomas Mann and Goethe in bed.This is really only for students learning German. There must be readers like me who have quite good German but need a portable dictionary from time to time.

2.0 out of 5 stars not the best dictionary, 23 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford Essential German Dictionary (Paperback)
I only needed a dictionary for basic information on the meaning of unknown German words and German phonetic pronunciation, for some reason this is given for English words but not how to pronounce the German words, there is a section on pronuncation at the start of the German/English translation but it is very complicated and not helpfull.

I should have bought a bigger dictionary. This is rather minimalist. I shall buy a bigger one soon. What I would really like is for the E--->G and the G--->E to come in separate volumes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not good for university level, 6 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford Essential German Dictionary (Paperback)
This dictionary is okay for carrying in your pocket for simple words. However, it is not great for students at university level as the vocabulary in there is not that advanced.

very good for the price and does the job fine. Obviously not as comprehensive as a major publishing but is enough for every day use
