Q: How do I find a word in the dictionary if I don't know how to spell it?

This new, revised and enlarged edition for the 1990's has added thousands of current words from business, computers, entertainment, medicine, psychology, religion, science, and law.

-- Each entry has been reviewed for clarity and conciseness.

My parents bought me a copy of this when I was in high school and it turned out to be invaluable. I highly recommend it to anybody who has difficulty spelling.
