Normal wear and tear from moderate use. May not include supplements. Sometimes the diagrams on how to do a sign are a little hard to figure out though. However this textbook should be used as that: a textbook for a class. There are some things that need to be explained by a teacher, especially if the signs are different in the local dialect. It provides not just the signs for certain words, but also the proper grammatical phrasing, and even sections on Deaf culture.
It is easy to follow either in the classroom or studying by yourself. This textbook also has an excellent feature that many ASL books lack: A wealth of information on Deaf culture and ASL as a separate language, not just "signing English. Together, they do an excellent job of providing an introduction to ASL and the Deaf world.
The only problem with this textbook is that, as of now, there is no Level II available. However, upon arrival I only received the heavily damaged textbook, the DVD and absolutely no workbook which I need for my class. When I emailed the seller, he only said that he was sorry and was not willing to send me the workbook in which I paid for. So for all of you that were thinking of buying from this company, I would highly advise against it.
The book itself is a good book and the one I needed for the class, I just wish I had bought it from another seller. However, some illustrations are hard to interupt and the DVD the signing is fast and hard to keep up with when you first start learning sign language.

I opened it and the DVD was not in the back of the book where it should have been. I need the DVD for my class so if anyone could help, I would give this book a higher rating!! This book was really easy to follow and understand. In this level one book you learn a lot of signs, how to fingerspell, vocab, ASL gloss, and how to communicate using different signs.
I love that this book comes with a DVD that shows you the hand movements and shapes clearly. There are also exercises in the book that help you practice your conversational ASL speech as well as perceptive skills.
Study and practice the vocabulary in the mirror or with a friend. My instructor showed me this text because he likes it much better.
He was correct! I love this book. It is easy to learn from and has more on Deaf culture. We cannot use it because they use it in the High Schools.
