Does anyone know of or could recommend a good, as comprehensive and complete as possible, French - English dictionary of acronyms. As I am preparing to sit one of the papers for DipTrans, I remember that one of the reasons that I failed this paper was because of an acronym that I didn't know and didn't have in the suitcase of dictionaries that I had with me. I really would like to avoid this problem next time around.
I would appreciate any suggestions

Thank you for your reply, can you suggest a paper version as I have no access to internet during the exam?

A list of bookstores where you could find a paper version.

Sug II:
I highly recommended http://french.about.com/library/writing/bl-acronyms.htm. Could you print the "dico" and take it with you?
