oddly enough this I think is the best and most practical of the American heritage dictionary collection. The book is more manageable, size and weight wise and more readable than other volumes by American Heritage which are supposedly more comprehensive. I have a feeling which I cannot demonstrate that the other American Heritage volumes are not nearly as comprehensive as they advertise themselves to be. The American Heritage Roget's thesaurus is a complete waste of money so is this supposed American Heritage "desk dictionary." Your choices are either this volume or the fall American Heritage dictionary. Readers in this review are not familiar with dictionaries should know that American Heritage leans very heavily toward more contemporary or newer words and slang. It is my considered opinion that it is very good to have another dictionary on hand besides any published by American Heritage.

Normally I'm all about digital conveniences, I'm a full blown gadget junkie. When my professor this semester insisted we bring a paper dictionary to class I was a little irritated since I have been spoiled to using the one on my iPad. I was pleasantly surprised when I found a card with free digital copies of the dictionary and thesaurus! That happiness was short lived when I couldn't get the website to accept the code that came with the book. I contacted both Amazon and Houghton Mifflin and received no help in trying to resolve the issue. So minus 1 star for sending me a product I cannot use and minus 1 star for not helping me resolve my issue.

However all of that aside, It is a nice dictionary and contains a more detailed etymology than a floppy $5.00 Webster from Walmart. I also enjoyed looking at the graph on the back cover that depicts the origins of language. I trashed the jacket because it was going to be bouncing around in a backpack, but it has held up to a semester of use and still looks new.

I like American Heritage Dictionaries because they are so detailed and have pictures, etc. This was a gift to my son and he checked the latest jargon in it, and said there was no Homeland Security listed, so he felt this was not as up to date as he would have liked it to be. The CD did not work on his current system, but his cousin who is a computer guru was able to make the appropriate adaptations to make it work (dont know what that those were).

I got each of my students a copy of this dictionary last year.. Some had never used a hard copy dictionary and for others the library is such an unfamiliar place they believe Wikapedia obviates the need for other sources. They don't have ro go any farther then their cell phones.. I teach college students by the way so I'm talking about about adults or ar least reasonable facsimiles.

This version is a fantastic supplement to M-W Collegiate. Though I will still turn to M-W if an "academic" definition is required, AHCD makes more sense in everyday reading and writing. I especially like the feature that it includes geographical and biographic entries in the main text, making the dictionary more like an encyclopedia. Highly recommended and a must-have for any serious student of words.

"The American Heritage College Dictionary" sits beside my computer at all times, and my son keeps one with him while doing his school work. The free download that came with this is such an added bonus; it contains a dictionary and thesaurus to install on your PC, and it automatically comes up in your Word and Excel applications! Very helpful.

I am very impressed with this dictionary. My favorite features are the small black-and-white photos and diagrams in the page margins, and each page contains a small pronunciation key so there's no flipping back and forth. It's very up-to-date. I also appreciate its size... Even though it has so many definitions and a large appendix, it's a very manageable size and weight. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a dictionary with thorough definitions for a reasonable price. I'm obsessed with dictionaries and believe me this one is excellent. As it is the AMERICAN Heritage Dictionary, the words and definitions favor the American English language over more international definitions, but that works for me.
This hardbound dictionary is one of the best I've found for the price. It's nicely laid out and easy to use, and actually has WORDS in it. You wouldn't believe some of the dictionaries I've had before that were so limited in their scope, half the words I wanted to look up weren't even in them. This one is GREAT!
