as much as I think these are necessary, if it isn't purchased directly from Amazon, some inmates in some states apparently can't receive it. At least that's what I just found out ordering it for a friends husband. My son used to get used books this way in Texas, but idk if he can anymore either. If you don't pay the shipping, they likely sell it for profit maybe even the SAME books over and over. I've had that happen with brand new books that were about prison life. Prisons are owned by corporations with stock holders? I guess they don't want inmates to survive or get smarter.
This is the dictionary that is the perfect size for work or college dorm. I bought this not for the home but for work. It's a hardcover edition so it can just sit on my desk next to my computer. It's easily more convenient than having to go to the Merriam-Webster website, which can be very slow at times. Since getting this dictionary for work, I've used it almost everyday and have found every word I was looking for. Because it's a collegiate dictionary, it's got a nice reference in the back of the dictionary for things like signs and symbols and a handbook of style section. The paper stock is smooth, white and crisp. Each page is arranged in two columns, which I find easier to read than a three column page arrangement of the unabridged dictionary I use at home. For the price, it's a steal. B&N was charging $25 for this in one of its stores. I got this at Amazon for over $10 less and no tax!
It does not have everything, but still works. I purchased it to help with my education and it has served beyond that, especially towards my spelling, which has deteriorated much after much disuse. Would not recommend this for playing Scramble against the computer, though. Not all the words the computer uses are in the Collegiate. I swear that computer cheats!
This dictionary is handy to have when you internet is out and you can Google the words. It's always great to have a back-up reference. It's worth buying.

With online access to every reference material imaginable, some might argue that we no longer need dictionaries on our bookshelves.
But for those who want a dictionary handy for quick look-ups, this is the one to get. It's the reference for the New York Times puzzles and many newspapers. And in my own unscientific tests of looking up obscure words in various bookstore dictionaries, this one always wins.
Sure, it's not the OED. But who's got room for that on their shelf (let alone the money to pay for it). The Merriam-Webster dictionary has brief etymologies, geographical and biographical sections and definitions galore. You can't go wrong with it.
As a professional who writes a lot, the 10th edition of "Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary" meets my needs. But I rarely use this book? Why?
Merriam-Webster has placed its Collegiate Dictionary and Collegiate Thesaurus on-line... Access is free. Since I usually keep my Internet browser on-line as I work, I just use the on-line version of the dictionary and thesaurus.
I suggest that you consider first using the on-line resources. If you find that you need a hard-copy version of the dictionary, you can always buy it.
This edition of the Webster's Dictionaray was recommended to me when I began writing historical fiction. Many of the entries have a note giving the year the word was first used. I had previously used an Oxford English Dictionary, which does not give the year of origin. The nice thing about the Oxford, however, is that it contains many words used in England along with English, rather than American, spellings.

This would also be a useful dictionary for the high school student. It has a presentation page making it a nice gift for students.
Perfect for the semester use.great shipping service
