Although it arrived in perfect condition, these days it's looking a little worse for wear.
Only because I bring it with me everywhere - to work, on the subway, grocery shopping.
Because you never know when a question like "How do you say broccoli in Arabic?" is going to pop into your head.

Overall, a great book to have to help get around in an Arabic-speaking country.

Tons and tons of vocabulary words on many different subjects, and with a pronunciation guide for English to Arabic.

Unfortunately, the typeface is very small and may be difficult to read for some, including the elderly. I brought it to an elderly Arabic neighbor's house and she was unable to read any of the words.

I have purchased about 6 different DK visual dictionaries from this series, and they are all wonderful. The Arabic, as well as the Mandarin Chinese ones have the transliterations along with the english word and the native script, so you know how to say the words using the english alphabet. You can start speaking the words right from the start, which is what most people want to do! You will need another book in order to create proper sentences, but vocabulary is where you want to start in any new language, and this will teach you thousands of words, and get you excited and motivated to move forward!

don't bother getting this for a trip to the Middle East July 20 2009
By Carl W. Bergquist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This dictionary might be quite good for an Arab visiting England, but for a Western tourist going to an Arab country it will be useful only for medical emergencies,etc. or for describing you own culture. It is just a rehash of the German, French, Spanish... dictionaries. That would be alright for a European culture but not for any Arab country that I have ever visited (5 in all). Where are all the things from the Arab's world? You can find everything from England of course, all the parts of a church but not even the word for minaret or the ababic "pulpit" (Minbar),etc. Lots of beatuiful northern landscapes (what about deserts?), all the games and sports which are not played, all the plants and trees which don't grow there (all the different types of English gardens!).All kinds of alcoholic beverages and all the food (cuts of pork) which you won't find in an Arabic country unless you just eat at the Hilton or Marriott (or, God forbid, Mac Donald's). Where are all the Arabic dishes: esfihas, chick pea spread, babghanouch, kibbe? Nothing! I wouldn't bother taking this on a trip to an Arabic country. I could probably get something more useful, even if less sofisticated, when I arrived there at the airport. With a culture so diferent the editors should have done a bit of research and editing/expansion before issuing a dictionary like this. Typical result of ignorance (arrogant lack of respect for?) of another culture!

Incorrect Transliterations Abound April 21 2011
By A.Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For anyone using this as part of their learning Arabic, be warned that the entire book is full of pooly done transliterations. Vowels are wrong in many cases (such as Katif being Kitif for example) or even consonants (all the instances of dhaal' are turned into z which will lead you to sound like an Egyptian instead of learning the correct standard pronuciation of dhaal' being as in the beginning of "that").

Additionally it seems as if all the pictures in the books correpond to a European/American world so maybe this is geared for someone coming from the Arabic world to here.

Excellent Complement for Modern Standard Arabic Courses July 12 2009
By George E. Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
DK's VISUAL ARABIC-ENGLISH BILINGUAL DICTIONARY is an excellent text to complement beginning Modern Standard Arabic courses. Not only is it visually attractive, but the up-to-date vocabulary, arranged by subjects (appearance, study, work, sports, etc.), has all the words that students want to know right away. I believe that it is absolutely essential, when learning new (concrete) words in a foreign language, that the student start right away to associate each word with an image. When a student looks at a door, for instance, he or she immediately thinks of the Arabic word for it. There is none of this "That's a door and the word for door in Arabic is...."

Useful book with some flaws Aug. 25 2010
By Taaliba al-3arabiyya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been studying Arabic for the past two years with Al-Kitaab, and realized that although I could often talk about very complex topics in Arabic, I often lacked very simple vocabulary for everyday things. I found this book to be really fantastic and useful for learning everyday words (wall, lamp), as well as very detailed specific things (kinds of tools for example). My main complaint is that I wish it would give the words with tashkeel for easier pronunciation, as well as giving the plural form of the word. It also would have been very helpful to include some more culturally specific words.
