HarperCollins Spanish College Dictionary 5th Edition by Harper Collins Publishers
HarperCollins Spanish College Dictionary 5th Edition

Frances, October 27, 2007

This is definitely for college students. The special center pages contain info on "email and text messaging" and "online vocabulary," among other standard subjects. It's got (in great variety and detail) the words that are bleeped off the radio. What it lacks, unfortunately, is a simple, alphabetical list of abbreviations used, an omission which has often driven me crazy. Instead there are 6 fairly confusing pages on the structure of entries. Also, the method of binding makes it hard to find the page you're looking for (bound in "clumps" of pages). Other than that, it's been a very useful dictionary. I've used it for some pretty hard Spanish reading and have only failed to find a word once.
