Sadly, however, the book describes the ACOL convention of the game, which today is a totally obsolete convention. I strongly recommend your checking out and confirming that such books represent the latest conventions being played in the Bridge circles. Because, people like me, who already have some knowledge of the game , would naturally feel cheated and get frustrated over having bought a book which was supposed to help, but turned out to be a bad egg.

USD For our formal lessons we start with a minute lesson and then play for a couple of hours. I email lesson notes after each lesson, usually with a quiz of some sort. We start the course by playing 'mini bridge' which is bridge without bidding, using a point count to determine the declarer. This is an introduction to learn card-play and some basics of the bidding requirement.
