This is a book of just the basic contractions and rules. It is not a dictionary of print-text and their braille equivalents (other than the standard contractions and short-form words).
There is a section of print-text to braille in alphabetic order, and one of braille to print-text in cell "order". The rules relating to each word or symbol are placed right by the word or symbol, and this is the best thing about the book.
A beginner is not going to learn braille from this book; it is a handy, small reference for those who already know the rules and just need a quick refresher on usage.

This book is an excellent reference for those Teachers of the Visually Impaired who's braille skills may be a little rusty. It's also a great "cheat sheet" for those who have newly learned braille, for transcribing. I've recommended this book to parents of visually impaired children who have taken my braille class, and they love it!

I am a para professional in a high school working with visually impaired and blind students. This book is an excellent reference book when preparing materials for these students. There are so many rules in braille and sometimes it's hard to remember them all - especially if they're not used often.

This book is awesome! I use it all the time - it is a great reference, easy to use, and compact. All the vision teachers I know have their own copy and recommended this transcription dictionary.
