Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift for a college student or beginner writer I use this book all the time when I want to double check a word's meaning and also when I am studying to break down complex wording to have a deeper understanding of my topic. The only thing is that the book is large and heavy, so it will weigh down a backpack or back when toting books to and from locations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dictionary Sadly, Oxford has stopped printing paper dictionaries. This was a good one, and as the title mentions, concise. And they really mean it. I find it too concise as I prefer longer and more explicit definition, but it's a good everyday usage dictionary for though needing to check spelling or to refresh quickly their memory on a word.
