Aus den Rezensionen: "! Der hier vorliegende ! Band umfasst die Periode 2003 bis 2005. In ihm sind alle in dieser Periode neu mit Namen versehenen Kleinplaneten und deren Entdeckungsumstande registriert. Zusatzlich findet man ! auch Korrekturen und Erganzungen zu den fruheren Banden ! Zwar bleibt die gewohnte Grundstruktur des Gesamtwerks erhalten, es kommen jedoch ein paar ausserst nutzliche Neuerungen hinzu. Auf den gewohnt umfangreichen Anhang muss ! niemand verzichten. Die Tabellen werden ! aktualisiert ! Das neue Konzept des Schmadelschen 'Dictionary' erscheint dem Rezensenten stimmig. !" (Gerhard Klare, in: Sterne und Weltraum, April 2007, S. 97 f.)
