My main gripe is that its coverage of irregular verb parts isn't at all good. The Collins dictionaries (even the little Gem) are much better when it comes to having headwords for odd bits of verb.
Another gripe is that this really isn't a pocket dictionary unless you have unusually large pockets!
My last gripe is that it is printed on really thick, rough paper, which makes it larger than necessary and not at all easy to flick through.
I'd advise beginners to buy the Collins Gem if you just want a dictionary or the Collins Dictionary and Grammar if you want a grammar as well.
May suit some, but if you're really serious about the finer details, look elsewhere.
(1) Latin to English
Entries sometimes have little accompanying explanatory boxes explaining odd or special cases. Very useful.
Contains all the noun, adjective, advert, and verb forms, as well as listing some bits and pieces regarding irregulars. Also the tables for ille and hic.
(3) English to Latin
I found it more than adequate for my examination. Good value and portable.
To summarise, an excellent, easy-to-use starter dictionary, perfect for basic/ intermediate Latin to English translation.
