Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a 3rd grade bilingual teacher, Spanish/English dictionaries are a must in the classroom. This volume is more than adequate--you are certain to get your money's worth, as far as finding the exact "sense" of the word you are looking for. The only problem, is that it is quite thick for a paperback volume. It is one of those books where you hold down the excess with your opposite forearm while trying to judge the thickness of how much to turn in order to get to the desired letter with the fingers of both hands. If you have little fingers using it, it will very quickly curl up from both front and back. If you are a backpack-toting dictionary-hauler, or if you read anywhere other than at a flat surface while using your dictionary, it might be a little easier going to to Merriam Webster's--which is a bit smaller in thickness, but works quite well. I have found the New World dictionary even bulky for me--a petite adult. As far as content quality, however, there is no better buy for the money.

This second edition has over 3,000 new entries and translations which reflect recent changes in business, technology, medicine and other areas. This mammoth dictionary is a very user friendly resource which not only gives the translation, but also the context, and in many cases, the appropriate idiomatic expression.
I had the first edition of this dictionary back when I took high school Spanish in the 1970's. I loved it then, and when I recently made the decision to take up this beautiful language again, I picked this dictionary from among several choices.
This is an essential reference addition for anyone learning Spanish, whether on your own, or as part of a class.

Among bilingual English/Spanish dictionaries, this is the one that fulfills all needs. It has an excellent list of words, and clearly indicates gender and uses (as nouns, adjectives...). The explanation of prefixes and suffixes is particularly useful, and frequently is neglected in such dictionaries. Best of all is the summary of grammar which, although brief, is amazingly comprehensive. The paperback version is compact enough to be convenient for travellers through the Americas, and the pronunciation guides are effective in both directions (if you read the explanation of the phonetic symbols).

As a Spanish teacher, I've reviewed several low-cost dictionaries to recommend to my students. This one is the best I've seen as it not only gives the word, but the usage or sense in which it is used. For example, a student wrote that he liked Saturday because it was his "day off". The dictionary he used only had the Spanish words listed in alphabetical order, so he wrote "mi día apagado". Had he used this dictionary, he would have known that "apagado" refers to lights that are extinguished.

I am studying Spanish as I am moving to Central America. The course I am taking issued me a larger dictionary that I found to be too large with many useless words. While the New World dictionary is somewhat limited in its vocabulary, it has all the words required for a beginner/intermediate Spanish student. It is light and easy to use. My only criticism of the layout is it only identifies feminine words; if the word is not annotated you have to assume it to be masuline. Overall, good value for the money.

This is the best dictionary of all the dictionaries that I have purchased over the years. I use my current one daily and am buying one for one of the mothers of my bilingual class so that she can learn English along with her child. Everyone who has seen this dictionary has wanted one. I will always check here first. Thanks

I am just learning Spanish and I needed a good reference dictionary. I find this one to be very easy to use and it provides expanations so that I can quickly understand what I need to know. It has over 1000 pages of text going in both directions. ... You just can't beat the price for what you get here.
