4.0 out of 5 stars A bit basic
Good enough for schoolkids, bur I wanted it for doing crosswords so found it wasn't detailed enough. Arrived quickly and in very good condition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Chamber's Paperback DEictionary
Disappointing becasue it is described as Chambers Paperback Dictionary so I thougfht this was soft-back version of the standard edition. It was in essence a convenient pocket style size. An excellent dictionary but a bit misleading in the description. WD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really like it., 28 Oct. 2013

This review is from: The Chambers Paperback Dictionary (Paperback)
I was reluctant to buy another dictionary, as I have a few already. However, this was recommended for a course I am on, and as it wasn't expensive, and my other dictionaries are older now, I bought this one. It's really quite handy, with good information at the beginning on how to use the dictionary, which is actually a good thing to read. Also, there is a section in the middle of the dictionary, A guide to effective writing, which is very good and packed with good advice. Definitely a good dictionary to buy, especially for the price.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's an ok dictionary, 24 Oct. 2012

I love words, the English language etc., and sometimes I go looking up a word then find myself reading the dictionary. Well, this one isn't quite like that. It's concise, makes sure I've spelled the word properly (it's important lol); I can't find very much else to say about it really. I'm not often lost for words but on this occasion I think I am. The paper isn't very good; however, I would recommend the dictionary as it's a good price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misprinted Dictionary., 11 April 2015

This review is from: The Chambers Paperback Dictionary (Paperback)
This dictionary has no "A" section at all. Starts at page 39.
It is a misprinted run off which you are selling at a give away price.
Wonder why ?
