I would appreciate any recommendations of a good one volume encyclopedia (English or Spanish) which I could use during the DipTrans exam.

Thanks in advance

Oxford Concise Encyclopedia Nov 19, 2009

Hi Louise,

When I took the exam a few years ago I took the Oxford Concise Encyclopedia - its about 1,000 pages, paperback. That and Chambers Pocket Thesaurus were the only 2 general, background reference books I used.

Cheers,

Keith
