Hello
I'm preparing for the 2015 Dip Trans exam. Would anyone be able to recommend a Spanish language encyclopaedia? I have been looking online but nothing is coming up. I also spoke to Grant & Cutler the foreign language bookshop and they drew a blank too!
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate your thoughts.
Best wishes
Jess

Hello neilmac, thanks very much. Sorry - I should have been more specific about the type I'm looking for. I'm looking for a hard copy if you know of any?
Thanks

Hi,

Go to the Amazon website and do a search for Encyclopedia Britannica in Spanish.

Several options come up such as Enciclopedia Hispanica.

Hope you find what you need and have good luck on your exam.

AFAIK the Espasa is available in hardback, or at least it used to be. However, I'd also recommend the Encyclopedia Britannica in Spanish.
