Dip Trans Exam 2015: Specialist Dictionaries

I'm sitting the Spanish to English Dip Trans exam on 20th January 2015. I'm looking for specialist dictionaries for the semi-specialised texts. Could anyone recommend a source for buying specialist dictionaries - technical, business, science and law?
Thank you

In case you live in London, have you tried the European Bookshop or Grant and Cutler?
Grant and Cutler are now part of Foyles at 107 Charing Cross Road, London. I just loved spending hours there when they were still independent - it does not have quite the same feel now that they are part of a big store, although the quality is still good.
The European Bookshop is on 5 Warwick Street, London.
I reckon both allow you to buy online too, although you'd have to be pretty sure what you want of course.

Good luck with the exam!
