I am taking an ASL class with a hard of hearing instructor. She is "updating" some of the signs to keep current; but, for the most part this books is dead on. I believe it's very well done!

It is very useful and clear The pictures are easy to follow with text instructions underneat for clarification and nearly every sign includes a hint to help you remember the sign. The hints really stick with you. We had to do a lot of studying the signs on our own, even though our teacher did go over most of them in class, and the book was very easy to learn from.
