As the Cambridge University Press has expressed, and I fairly admit this, one of the most advantages of this dictionary over the others, specially Oxford version, is that there is a short, simple and practical word defining the entry. I think this method accelerates the process of that a new word sticks in mind. So after experimenting some dictionaries such as Longman Handy Learner's ... and Oxford Advances Learner's.., I finally decided to focus on this dictionary.

I really liked the presentation of the words in this dictionary, but it misses some important meanings, that even a pocket-dictionary offers. E.g. Accordingly - there is only one meaning available: 'in a way that is suitable or right for the situation'. It does not tell us that also means 'for that reason; therefore'.
