This compact and spartan OED of Current English is produced to fit the maximum number of entries in a compact space; the pages are thin, the definitions are terse, and there are no added maps, population tables, etc. A US user might cavil that a lot of British usage and slang is included. But on the whole it is a very useful dictionary, inexpensive, easy to read, with a vast number of words in a book one can carry about easily without back strain. It admirably suits the purpose for which it was designed, and I am happy to replace my old Webster with it.

good

For those times when your internet doesn't work this is a great little dictionary to have on hand!
Mozel
Concise and very adequate for every day language needs.

I think this dictionary is okay. I expected it to have more definitions for the words than it does. I think it's good for maybe elementary school or something like that.

Very happy to have this in my home. Hard copy of reference materials are sweet

Overall this is a very useful dictionary with a good selection of words; clear, concise definitions; and a logical, easy-to-use pronounciation system.
However, this is a "Compact" dictionary, so in order to save space they have left out many ponounciations and etymologies. Also, it is written from a very British point of view, which, if one is an American, could cause some confusion at first.
Although the seller labels this book (understandably) as the "Compact Oxford English Dictionary," they are in fact selling the "Compact Oxford Dictionary of Current English." The former is a micrographically reproduced version of the complete OED in two volumes, while the latter (sold here) is a small desk-dictionary.
If you are looking for completeness I would suggest the 20-volume OED, but if you are looking for an easy-to-use dictionary that has a very large word-selection for its size, I would recommend the Compact Oxford Dictionary of Current English.
