In my opinion, the utility of this dictionary is greatly limited by the fact that
it does not contain any specifications for pronunciation -- for either language.
The IPA is available for this purpose and the book chooses not to use it
-- or any pronunciation scheme. If you want pronunciation -- and IPA at that, get the
New Routledge Dutch Dictionary Dutch <-> English.

This is not a small dictionary in physical size -- as the word compact in its title
would suggest. "Limited" would be a better word. The New Routledge Dictionary
has more Dutch entries (25000 > 15000), uses the IPA, and is physically smaller!

Reasonably good as a shelf dictionary, but I foolishly thought a "compact" dictionary would fit in a pocket or handbag and so be useful on a visit to the Netherlands. The dictionary itself is basic, and omits quite a lot of words which, at this size, might be expected to be included.

good sized dictionary. Arrived in good condition within time stated. Nice clear print. It is better than the 2 books I had previously that this is replacing.

It is what it says it is, a compact dictionary which is easy to carry around and use. Very happy.

I liked the size, the fact that it is light and I can carry with me easily: What you want from a dictionary

A no nonsense easy to use dictionary with clear typography. I was pleasantly surprised.
