I got this book to keep in my purse so that I can refer to it when needed. I wish there were some words in it that aren't, but it is quite useful. I am able to understand the hand motions and I love the little hints that are helpful for remember the sign.

This book gave me the confidence I needed to know that I can succeed. The memory aids were the most helpful as I was having trouble remembering all the signs I was learning on flash cards until I started using the memory aid in this book. I would have given it five stars, but everyday words I needed were not in it.

Cool book! I loved it. It has hundreds of A.S.L. words to learn and remember, and the illustrations and descriptions make the signs easy for even young people to learn. It's worth the money and the wait.
