Terrible for anyone advanced in Japanese

If you are just learning Japanese, I'm sure this dictionary will be good for you. However, it offers only basic Japanese and when you search a word, several come up. Any specialized word you want to use won't show up. I typed in "medical" and I got "health." Not the same thing. I knew immediately I wasted $20.
