Excellent dictionary and thesaurus

This is an excellent dictionary and thesaurus.

What does this word mean---is there synonym for it?

If you do a lot of reading or any writing;you can't get far without a good Dictionary to start with;then you'll also need a good Thesaurus to follow through.But, which of the many to choose? I have several of each,but this one is different,and I will probably keep it handy because it will serve my purposes ,most of the time.I know ,at times it will not meet all my needs;but in those cases,I can turn to the bigger ones. The layout of this book is very ingenius (see,The proper spelling is "ingenious" and another word which gives similar meaning is "skillful"--all on the same page). The thing that makes this book different ,is that each page is split; with the dictionary part at the top of the page and the thesaurus at the bottom. Thus,one need only to make one search for both.An alternate would be to have the Dictionary at the front ,with the Thesaurus at the back---not nearly as handy. Another plus with this book is that the paper,printing and construction is very good for a paperback edition. The one thing with a paperback dictionaty is that the binding can weaken and break with a lot of use. This one looks pretty good and even lies open very well.Tugging at individual pages,they seem very well adhered to the binding.However; time and use will tell;but I suspect it will serve very well for personal use.Also,with respect to paperback Dictionaries,the paper is often very poor,more suitable for newspapers or mass market "Dimestore Novels"; and with the print size too small and poor contrast with the cheap paper.This is very important when thumbing through pages searching.I find flipping through this one excptionally good;and that has to be because of the heavy paper. The paper is heavy,very white and the print is large enough,assisted by the high constrast.The first thing that impressed me was how sharp and clear the printing was;and it hit me as soon as I opened it. There are a lot of other good features to this combined Dictionary/Thesaurus ,and I am sure I will find more as I use it. So,if you are thinking of purchasing a Dictionary or Thesaurus or both make sure you consider this combined one;it should serve the purpose very well,for most people. Oh yes,another excellent feature of this book is that it lies open when flat;quite unusual for a paper bound book.

Very handy

Book is very useful having a two in one saves time on lookin for thesaurus or worrying about where your dictonary is

A must have for all writers and students.

What makes this particular resource so valuable is that each page of the book has the dictionary section on top and the thesaurus section on the bottom. So, if you're looking up the definition of a word you don't have to hunt around in another section of the book for a similar word - it's on the same page.

A College Need!!!!!

Since my classes require lots of in class papers I found this book to be quite helpful. It is not very large and heavy and also includes a thesaurus! I am very glade with my choice!

Great for students and writers- very concise but thorough.

Readable and useful. I have used this with my own children and students - It is nice having a hardbound book with all that is needed in it rather than using 2 volumes. Clear Print and up-to- date
