What's New in Version 6.2
*Word list added
Not worth it
I found the description of this product misleading. It isn't the full OED. I have the Merriam-Webster 3.8.1 (which I purchased 1st) and have found that it more useful than this version of the OED, even for vocabulary from the 17th and 18th century.
