Great for first time learners

Good for first time learners or for a refresher if you learned it in the past.

From a Deaf perspective

American Sign Language Concise Dictionaryby Martin L.A. SternbergThis is an excellent resource guide that is easy to use. It is one of the few ASL books that have been widely published and is ASL centered. I have a copy and carry it always with me.

Great Refrence for ASL!

This book is an absolut neccessity for the ASL student. There are signs for nearly everyword you can think of! This book helped me converse with my deaf friends comfortably. I know have a greater knowledge of signs from just about any topic. It is a must for those wishing to learn sign language or have any deaf friends or relatives. It is concise and gives accurate definitions for the sign and the meaning of the word.

one of the best asl dictionaries

this particular asl dictionary is one of the best out there. it's the one i chose for my shelves. it's complete, concise, and the illustrations are easier to understand than most i've seen. if you are interested in asl or a beginner, you could do much worse than pick this book up.

If you are looking for a great asl book, this is the one!

This is a great book if you are having troubles or need to learn asl. It has all the basic words you need and more! If anyone is looking for a book with everything they need then this is definetely the one to buy. Not only did they show a picture but also wrote out how to do it, so if you are visual, or are better learning by words you will understood it clearly and I think it would be worth your money! Martin L.A. Sternberg is the best yet!

I'ts amazing what you can learn from this dictionary!

I think this dictionary is great for parents who don't know how to sign and are raising a child who is deaf. This book is easy to understand and interpret words and phrases into your child's vocabulary. This dictionary is also good if you are working with people on a regular basis, because you never now when you've come across someone you can't understand!
