Good value for everyday use (even after 40 years!)
on 14 October 2015
Bought for a 13 year old, and ideally suited - to encourage first everyday use of a dictionary e.g. to take to school. Originally chosen as my own Collins Gem had done wonders for 40 years. This version has more pages, so is slightly bulkier, but still easy to slip in school bag; very slightly disappointed to discover fewer entry abbreviations (e.g. just vb for verb, rather than vi / vt intransitive / transitive verbs, etc) to help with his grammar. Excellent VFM though, with free and prompt delivery.
