The range of books in this package is wide and deep. The dictionary titles are well respected and reliable. Compared to a printed book, using this package is not very intuitive, but that is really a criticism of the Libronix system, not the titles themselves. Searching is fast, and you have to be rather specific or you get too many matches, because there is so much information. Overall a great package!
These excellent dictionaries are an invaluable addition to any pastor's library. They are written by some of the greatest evangelical scholars in the world. The dictionaries included are aimed a specific areas of Scripture. There is nothing else quite like it for the money. At this low price, you simply cannot do better than this collection.
I have used a lot of reference tools in in my life but the Essential IVP Reference Collection 3.0 is more complete and easier to use than almost all the reference books I have read. The treatment of almost all entries which I saw need to consult until now is exhaustive. I do not feel the urge to take my reference books from the shelf anymore since using the Collection is so much easier.
Two issues with the software. First, the activation code did not work and I had to call customer service. Customer service was great, however, I do not own a single Libronix product that I did not need customer service to help me install. Secondly, there could be a much better serach engine for the books to find information you are looking for. All that being said, the background material is great and indespensible when preparing a sermon or Bible study.
