Reviews about the ebook:
- M Robertson:
Used this book in my ASL Fingerspelling class. It has a lot of good practice drills. The explanations are for formal fingerspelling, not native fingerspelling you’d see from ASL fluent Deaf people. One big positive, this ebook has drills that show fingerspelling in 2-D space (not only the typical fingerspelling location); however, they haven’t explained that way in the directions.We didn’t use the glossing portion of the book in class.
- Alex Hannaford:
Needed this for class. Came in good condition, very useful. I will say that you need both books to resell these back to a college because they won’t just take the workbook.
- Patricia A Stegall:
This book arrived in time for a Christmas gift for my son-in-law. He lit up like a Christmas tree when he opened it. It will help him get his ASL certification.
- Lee & Behold Design:
This book has more of a workbook format, so it wasn’t the best “guide” This is more of a practice book, to prove what you know. Although, I hope it very helpful for my ASL classes! 🙂
- Sarah Beth:
Sometimes drills are the only way to go. I’ve looked online for free resources but they’re not nearly as good. The book is worth it.
- Jarred rush:
Just what I needed for class.
Current fingerspelling manual for ASL learners.
- Jeremiah Peterson:
A good book for learning ASL.
- Courtney Fuller:
Good for my kid’s school.
My daughter uses this book for homeschooling as a second language. It has been very helpful and we appreciate the ease of learning it provides.
- D. Slaughter:
I purchased this book for college ASL classes. I was able to use the book for 2 semesters. I still use the book and I continue to use it to remembers signs I need in communicating with a deaf client.

- Heather Anderson:
Needed this for a class and was in great shape.
Items arrived as told online, described right, ship and handle was a good price and good packaging. Hope to work with them again.
- Tori Donahue:
It was the book I needed for class. Has many activities to practice signing. Really helps with fluency.
