Perfect ^ ^
By Sweet World
This dictionary is for people who already know how to read Hangul script.
The words are arranged according to the Hangul and not by the romanized pronunciation of a word.
I find it practical and that's why I take it with me everywhere. ^^'

Great dictionary, but...
I really wish it didn't have romanization next to the hangul characters. I just learned the characters and know mostly how to read them, but my eyes just go towards the romanized words. It's not too bad, it's just that it would be better without them. Good for someone who still doesn't know all the characters.

Great for a Korean ELL.
I purchased this book for my daughter a couple weeks ago, and she's been using it up! She finds that it has all the vocabulary she needs to help her in high school. It has references in Hangul as well as Romaji, which makes it easy to find words.
The English side has pronunciation guides in English, as well as the Hangul definition. It is the most useful tool for transitioning from one language to another I've found in the US,
