I would recommend getting both. The student edition of
the KB is really becoming the standard Hebrew lexicon,
and Brill is to be commended for publishing at a price
that puts it almost in the reach of the individual.
Before they did that, KB was over $125/volume for the
5-volume set. I've used Hollday for years and still
reach for it when I'm doing a quick look at a verse. I
also still use my Brown-Driver-Briggs. If you get a
BDB get the one that has the index in the back
(published by Hendrickson) which tells you what page
the various words are on. It's a real-time-saver
because it is classified by root rather than in
alphabetical order. If money is no object get KB, if
it is, then get Holladay
