This book is clear to follow, with an alphabetical thumbnail guide, making it one of the easiest to use reference works I have ever encountered for foreign languages. The masterstroke here lies in the numbering and grouping of the different meanings of synonyms under each word, so you never doubt whether two synonyms are exactly the same or vary slightly. The anatonyms even refer to the individual sub-groups of synomyms and not merely the main word. I would highly reccommend this book to any advanced or university student of Spanish and it's also really quite cheap for a reference work of its quality.

This is a book for people who already have a strong knowledge of Spanish as it contains no English whatsoever. There are thousands of words listed alphabetically, and for each there is a wide selection of synonyms. Of course, not every synonym has the exact same meaning as the original word (e.g. 'domicilio/address' is given as an alternative for 'casa/house')therefore it is essential that you already know the main vocabulary. So, if your Spanish is good enough, then this book will serve you perfectly. I have found it very easy to use and it even covers some regional varieties and antonyms. Just a little word of warning: sometimes the synonyms offered are very uncommon in everyday speech and writing which may leave even native speakers bewildered!

I received it yesterday and have already began to wonder how I managed without it. The right word is always in there as long as you don't get intimidated by the fact it is ALL in Spanish.
An excellent resource. Buy it!

Got this diccionary for my 9 years old son who is half spanish and he is studying in Madrid at the moment.
The price was much cheaper than buying it in Madrid. He is in year 4 and needed this for his Lengua Subject.

I am studying Spanish and need to do essays where I need to extract information from articles, videos etc and put them in my own words to avoid plagiarism. This little book is a perfect companion for that.
