This dictionary which contains alot of information that anyone who already know and wants to learn as a reminder or to help each individual expand on their knowledge of sign language is a good helper for the interpretor. The signs are clear where people can look at how they are signed and the wording in the book also helps you.
I'm a begginer and I found this dictionary very helpful, the pictures and explanations of hand positions and movements are very clear. My only problem is that the book won't repeat a single sign, since multiple words can have the same sign the book will give you the list of those other words but not the specific one with the actual explaination so it takes a lot of flipping back and forth.
