And neither is particularly difficult. I'm having a mild attack of buyer's remorse.
Update: I have now replaced my Cambridge with the Concise Oxford, with which I'm definitely happier. If English is not your native language, however, I'd say you're better off sticking with the Cambridge (see my review of the Concise for the reasons).
I recommend the "Cambridge International Dictionary of English (Paperback) (ISBN:0521484219)", "Cambridge Dictionary of American English (CD-ROM INSIDE) [ISBN:0-521-77974-X], "Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary: Of Current English (Paperback) (ISBN:019431510X)" or "The New Oxford American Dictionary on CD-ROM (ISBN:0195150619). Those are all better than Cambridge International Dictionary of English on CD-ROM (ISBN:0521775752).
I hope with this help you!!
It comes with a CD that was intended to be interesting, since it has a voice engine that pronounces the words for you. BUT the application takes power from the computer, takes forever to startup and is excessively slow.
In a brief, only the dictionary is worth it.
