Type of dictionary to bring into the exam hall

Post by Lynn » Tue Jul 31, 2012 7:41 pm

I will be sitting for the Staatsexamen I in one months time. I am self-studying. I know that we are allowed to bring in dictionaries to the exam hall, but I was wondering on the type of dictionary.

I plan to bring in a (i) Dutch-English dictionary and
(ii) English-Dutch dictionary.

Is this allowed or must the dictionary be Dutch-Dutch only?

Are highlights with pencil/markers in the dictionaries allowed?

Any recommendations on good dictionaries in the market?

I recall browsing through a dictionary which also listed the relevant particle "de" or "het" in front of a Dutch word, if applicable. I cannot recall the name of the publisher though. Would such a dictionary be allowed for the exam?

Thanks a lot!

Lynn I have some information on the exam and what you are allowed and not allowed to do in my NT2 course I will get it together and email it to you in a few days. I also have a lot of practice materials coming from NT2 in a few days. I will share anything useful with you.

Dear Shazzy,

I saw that some years back you had practice materials for staatexamen I, would you please share them with me too? And I would be glad to know the type of dictionary allowed. As Lynn asked, English-Dutch or Dutch-English ? Any suggestions from anyone are welcome. I will be sitting for the exam in a couple of months.

Thank you

I'm sorry to inform you that Shazzy hasn't logged since May last year. I doubt if she'll ever read your request, but I do hope that somebody else will read it and be able (and willing) to do something for you.
