Better than most! Mar 19, 2002

Checked a sample of 10 medical terms; 9 were perfect 1 was over-specific.


Conclusion: Better than most!

yep! Mar 19, 2002

I\'ve been using it for almost a year now and highly recommend it. The caveat is 130,000 word limit. Speaking only of the engineering, physical sciences and mathematics sections, I suggest to restrict your search to general terms and avoid highly specific, abstruse terms. Definitions, when found, are thorough.

Thanks, Mats!!! Mar 19, 2002

It\'s really a valuable source. Sometimes it might be helpful, technics is not my area of expertise, though.

Hi Mats,

I keep on clicking this site because it is very good when it works. However, nine out of ten times I find this message:



\"We\'re sorry, the Dictionary of Science and Technology search engine is currently being maintained. Please try your search again later or use the browsing interface.

We apologize for any inconvenience.\"



I hope that will change soon.

Greetings,

Ursula
