Very usable dictionary
By Erika Mitchell
This is a very usable bilingual dictionary. With 70,000 entries, it's all I've ever needed to get through daily life in French or even read non-technical books. Complete pronunciation information is given for entries in both languages. At the beginning of the French-English section is a very comprehensive summary of French grammar, including the complete declensions of 76 irregular verbs. With such a summary, you don't need to carry a grammar book along if you have this dictionary with you.

Amazing piece of reference
By Richard Chen
Whether you like French or not, this small package packs a huge punch w/ its plethora of words. What really pleased me were all the idioms and phrases I didn't expect in a ENG-FR dictionary as small as this one. Its range of words, from the usual to the oddball, is great and I keep it next to me always when writing in FR. I've yet to find a dictionary as small as this one yet with the same wealth of reference.

Comprehensive Dictionary with One of Few Decent Overviews
By A Customer
Probably the best of the Bantam New College series dictionaries, in my opinion. Its simple guide to French usage is simple enough to retain its clarity yet provide a good-enough overview so that one might compose small sentences with fair accuracy
