Excellent excellent excellent.
if you're an architecture student you should buy this book!.. it will help with all technology and history assignments. this book is useful for revision! 'archi-terms' pretty much all in there!..
it is not like form space order, it is a concise book of terms. VERY USEFUL!.. form space order is more useful for design projects, visual dictionary is more useful for research and assignments...
hope this helps.. :)
